    I have seen other threads with similar issues but mine involved all apps I use, Prime, Netflix, You tube, Pandora and iheart radio. On a 1 tb Roamio version 21.10.1.V11. When turning on first time I have to restart the box or I cannot connect to the apps. The apps home page boots up but cannot go any further. The rest of the day is ok after reboot. Regular tv works fine with no reboot needed. Any input would be great.

    So... don't use apps on Tivo.

    I know, dead horse, but people are insistent on beating that thing.

    I do Netflix occasionally on my Roamio Pro and haven’t noticed any issues. Not sure what version it’s running. Last Netflix run was about 2 weeks ago. Same for Plex.

    It’s not unreasonable to expect a device’s primary functionalities to work correctly. Tivo has touted streaming capabilities since the series 3, I believe.

    Certainly not unreasonable a all. But the reality is they still don’t work properly and never have. So the logical solution is to use something else rather than continue to hold out hope for something that will never be fixed and will in fact only get worse the older these apps become.

    Are you turning your TiVo 'off' ?

    Maybe quit doing that?

    Agreed, but it IS unreasonable to expect that the situation will change because you post here or contact Tivo and complain when the overwhelming evidence is that it won't change a thing.

    Therefore the obvious conclusion is to switch to other streaming options.

    I leave it in medium standby like I have for the past 6 years. And use my peanut remote to turn on and off.

    And I have no choice but to use my LG apps for the music part of it.
