You Tube is okay. Netflix is glitchy. Profiles are not available at the moment. There is no ETA for when they will be due to ongoing Tivo/Netflix interface issues. Netflix works great for some but for others it is unreliable and prone to causing random Tivo reboots. This can happen whether or not something is recording. But it is most annoying while recording. especially when recording something that has no upcoming episode, which leaves one with two separate recordings and a gap in the spot where the reboot occurred.
According to TivoMargret, there is a "fix" due in December. However, there have been previous "fixes" that have worked for some but not for others. Some of the same "fixes" that worked for some have also created previously non existent issues for others. I, for one, didn't have reboots until they "fixed" reboots. Now I have reboots.
It's hit or miss and completely random as to whether or not your set up will be one that is reboot free (as many have attested to here) or one that will be reboot prone. Or one that works great one minute and is reboot crazy the next.
We are assured that Netflix and Tivo are working actively to find a solution that works for everyone and will, ultimately be able to introduce profiles. But so far, these goals has been elusive.
That being said, when Netflix is working on Tivo Roamio, it is snappy, fast and a simply astounding.
Also worth mentioning: If the slow, unresponsive nature of You Tube and Netflix on your Premier is related to your Cable/Internet service, having a Roamio won't change anything.
