    So perhaps TiVo's Netflix streaming player implementation is not the hands down worst, after all :D. Still, I have faith that it's one of the very worst.

    Suggestion to Netflix: how about each season is a sub-folder under the main folder? Having to scroll through a list of 100 episodes is cumbersome.

    Suggestion to Tivo: Please, please, oh please update the Netflix app!

    i havent gone through the whole thread but i have something different. married with children on the tivo is skipping episodes. i have a few episodes from every season filling up the 100 slots and there is nothing beyond that. for example, it will show 1:s1e1 , 2:s1e4, 3:s1e13 and so on. there is not continuity. there are instances where two part episodes are not there, just the first or second part.

    i have no issues on the boxee or ps3, they are all there and i dont see any indication of a 100 episode limit.

    Aero, sorry to hear that you're having this trouble.

    Here are a couple of workarounds you can try:

    1. Using "beta search" on a Series3 or the HD UI search on a Series4, search for Married with Children and select the episodes you want.

    or

    2. Head to Netflix.com and play the first part of the episode you're interested in. You can then resume playing on TiVo.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. We're working with Netflix to see how we can improve this situation.

    Best,
    Stephen

    Separate folders for each season is really the only way to go. This mess of so many shows in one folder is nuts - no matter what machine you are using. This Netflix change stinks. Maybe it will be easier to use Amazon or Blockbuster.

    thanks. i understand that works, and it does, but that takes away from the mindless activity of watching tv. now i have to over think the basic concept of the netflix queue. i put MWR there for a reason, easy access and mindless clicking. Tivo/Netflix is defeating that purpose, boxee/netflix is not.

    Have you bothered to read the thread yet?
    If you have, you know that what you are getting is what you are supposed to be seeing because Netflix on Tivo displays only 100 episodes based on the last episode that you watched, but not 100 that are in complete sequential order. There are over 280 episodes of MWC spread over 11 seasons, so you see only a few of each season once you pass the first 100 episodes.

    It doesn't even look as though Tivostephen is paying attention to the thread.

    The Beta Search workaround doesn't work for Cheers. The episode I wanted to see was not available to 'watch now' from the search page.
    Starting if from my PC worked though, but seems to be a kluge at best.

    And where is Season 4 of the Twilight Zone??

    Perhaps TiVo and LG are using an older API then some of the newer devices?

    Folks, sorry that this issue is continuing. We're investigating our options with Netflix and with our application. We recognize that neither workaround is acceptable. We're sorry for the problem and appreciate your patience.

    We're also working to improve the data situation. Please continue to make us aware of any programs that are not correctly being listed as available on Netflix.

    Best regards,
    Stephen

    Having this same issue with "Scrubs" and "Top Gear;" Episodes that were previously working in the Premier HD search are now no longer listed as being available to view via Netflix... and adding the shows to the instant queue can only list 100 episodes, very hard to jump around now. Guess I'll be going back to Netflix on the Wii until this is sorted out. Was really looking forward to using Tivo for everything, but with broken Netflix as more shows move to combined seasons and never coming through with Hulu Plus, its not looking good. :(

    It's very nice to see that someone from Tivo is chiming in, but this is now a 3 week old problem. None of my other devices that stream Netflix have this problem.

    I remember when Tivo had all these great features that set them apart from the crowd. Now all they have are these great bugs that set them apart.

    I access Netflix through TIVO, an LG Blu-Ray, and a Sony Blu-Ray. The Tivo and the LG have the issue of the 100 episode limit, I checked the Sony and it does NOT. The Sony has an interface that has about 15 random episodes of the show you choose, but the last box says "see all". When this is chosen you get the option to pick individual seasons, and then what episode you want in that season.
    I talked to Netflix about this and got the "we'll pass it on the Tech". Don't know where that will go, but at least SONY has it right so something must be able to be done to fix the interface on TIVO and LG.
