The first of July I upgraded from Series 3 to Premiere. I purchased the refurb special for 49.99. Great time to get the Premiere. At least I thought.
The issues I have are:
*When watching a recorded program, when I go to guide, to see what is on, if I hit the guide button again to return to the program, the Tivo goes to live TV, so I have to return to the recorded program and find my place.
*Using the Hulu plus, when watching a program, when I pause, the Tivo goes to live tv after less than 2 min. of pausing. Does the same thing using Stream Baby.
*We also have a Series 3 in another room, using the same antenna, it works fine. The Premiere, however, on several stations, is unwatchable. It pixelates on especially 2 channels. On my Series 3 I never had this problem Worked flawlessly.
*When switching from one recorded program to another in My Shows the Tivo will take between 3 to 10 seconds to respond to the command. I have learned the hard way to wait, otherwise the unit will perform the command numerous times resulting in unusual behavior.
*YouTube is not useable. Reading other posts, it appears that this is a common problem, and should be accepted as normal. Just thought I would mention it.
Just wondering if this performance of the Premiere is normal. If it is, I will deal with it. Tivo has saved me a ton getting rid of cable/satellite. I am, however, disappointed in the Premiere. If I were not committed to a one year contract, I would have stayed with the Series 3 HD and never "upgraded". Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
