Tivo Stream downloaded videos sometimes don't play

Does anyone else experience this? I'll download something and it says that it is finished downloading but when I go to play it it says it cannot play it. Any solutions besides redownloading? Or is there a way that I should be downloading it differently?

I don't care if you are black, white, purple, green, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, hippie, cop, bum, admin, user, English, Irish, French, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Indian, cowboy, tall, short, fat, skinny, straight, gay, lesbian, jock, nerd, geek, Democrat, Republican, Independent, either you're an ******* or you're not.

I've only ever used the download feature a couple of times for testing, but it worked every time for me.

I have had that happen a lot. If you try to play it again it usually works. On my last flight I had 3-4 files that would not play, but after trying them a few times or rebooting the ipad, they all played.

I definitely have had that happen once in a while.

Also, if a program stops transferring(*) and then you restart it or it restarts itself automatically upon reconnection, you end up with SKIPS in the video (luckily, usually skips BACKWARDS, i.e. you see a second or so over again), though I also had the audio drop out a tiny bit a few times too.

(*) !@$!@$!@$!@$ requirement for the Stream & Premiere to BOTH be able to see Tivo.com AND each other at the same time.. So you can't transfer on a local/flaky network.
