    I added an Apple Airport Express, and set up as a range extender near my TiVo Premiere XL.
    So far, so good. No C133 problems for over a day.

    I will see how this holds up over the longer term. Looks promising.

    FYI, when you use extenders they're usually supposed to be setup ~half way (or a specified distance) between your main router/wifi source and the source you need it extended to, in this case your TiVo. Setting it up near the TiVo just means its going to get the same signal level received there as would the TiVo. I guess if its more sensitive and has better reception than the TiVo's wifi card you're OK, as it seems may be the case based on your report, but you'll probably still get better results putting the airport express somewhere about half way in between the wifi router and TiVo.

    Just a tip, should you have any further issues. Good luck! :)

    I understand what you are saying.

    Apple receiver is more sensitive. And no signal drop problems on my Apple equipment anywhere in my house. So, in this case, it works, because it is Apple (Time Capsule) to Apple (Airport Express)... designed to work together. In this case it works well.

    Your advice is appreciated and well taken.

    Thanks,
    Alan

    I guess it's time for me to accept that it is a flawed product and I will always get some communication errors. I never had any problems with my xl4.

    Actually, this product has very few flaws.
    All products have kinks.
    I bet it will be even better with future software updates.

    Any complex product release usually has a few bugs along the way.

    Getting it on my Mini connected via Moca, but my Roamio connected via the same router using Ethernet is working fine.

    Same in Pittsburgh. This must be a real Tivo outage.
    Tivo/Margret, please comment.

    Thanks!
