ERR-2 Comcast/Xfinity On Demand - when using Tivo Search

Does Xfinity On Demand work for others if you go to it via Tivo's search via Find TV->Search

I seem to get a LOT of ERR-2 when attempting to actually watch it.

I can watch shows if I go directly to Find TV->Xfinity On Demand

For example - if I search for "Airplane" - it does appear in TiVo's search as available via Xfinity On Demand. But if it try to watch it - I get ERR-2. When I go through Find TV->Xfinity On Demand and look for it there - it doesn't appear to be available... So possibly ERR-2 is really indicating that the show is not found. So why is the TiVo search finding things that don't really exist in Xfinity On Demand?

I don't remember what error I was getting, but yesterday I was getting errors that I had never seen before (also the On Demand program playing simply FROZE for me once, which I've never seen before).

Eventually trying enough, I got it to work. (I *rarely* use On Demand, but Spike (1) shows few commercials in their On Demand (ironically), and (2) lets you FF through them, and (3) doesn't copy protect the On Demand so I can dub off Joe Schmoe to watch on my faster-than-realtime recorder anyway.)

I also get that at times triftraf.

Seems to happen to me when the show is no longer on-demand and the Tivo thinks it is.
