I have a tivo premiere, upgraded from Tivo HD.
I do have an external hard drive.
My Tivo Premiere doesn't seem to pixelate. Back when I was in CT, I had that issue. I ended up solving it on my own with the attenuator. So I move to Colorado.
Certain shows, and not always the same place, the show freezes/stutters/ Rarely if any pixelzation. Then the system reboots. Happened last night while trying to watch Boardwalk Empre and recording Once upon a time (thank god for Xfinity on Demand)
So I already have the attenuator in there. The Tivo person wants me to recheck the signal strength. I'm wonder if thats a rabbit whole. Like even if the signal is a little off - WTF, it doesn't mean my premiere should reboot (that never happened to the HD).
Has the above happened to you on a premiere? Bad signal . .might try kickstart54 tongiht too
