Odd behaviour

I had some network issues last night and this morning. I had to turn off my Actiontec router for 2+ hours to get it functional (something to do with DHCP?). Anyhow, this morning with the router back on I attempted to watch a show recorded on one Roamio on the other Roamio. The odd thing was the shows list reverted to the old Tivo design. What would cause that? Will check back in later to see if it fixed itself.

I don't know the precise cause, but it seems to be related to network instability. I had a similar issue when I first got my Roamio last year. I tried to run via Powerline Ethernet adapters. Tivo/Tivo streaming would work sometimes with HD menus. Other times it would revert to SD menus when browsing he remote Tivo, but would allow Multi-Room streaming of shows. And still other times, it would be in SD menus and not allow Multi-Room Streaming. I spent about a week cycling through modified network setups to try and isolate the issue. Eventually, it became apparent that something with with the Powerline adapters was causing instability in the network. I switched to MoCA and haven't had a problem since.

It's entirely possible that there is something wrong with your Actiontec router and causing network instability.
