Yup.... and now it works
Heh, not for me. Something tells me this is not "Scheduled Maintenance" during primetime viewing on day 1 of a big launch.
Tried a few minutes ago and that's what I got too.
Okay, now it is working for me, too.
Does anyone know where the netflix servers are located? I have a 6mbps connection through Comcast (confirmed through www.speakeasy.net) but I'm not getting HD titles from Netflix.
We had to roll a new version of the application on one of our servers around 4:30pm Pacific. It took about 15 minutes. During that time, randomly some customers may have seen the maintenance message.
For all of you who were having trouble launching the Video on Demand message, are you still seeing an issue?
Apologies for the inconvenience.
Man, I got it working, but I have COMCRAP! Yippie! 6 mbps, and I can't get it past 1/2 the bars. Great.. never again.. never again.. if I have a freaking actually have a choice of providers when I move.
Went to 'Watch Instantly' and have been at 'Please Wait' for 4 minutes. Unit is unresponsive to 'Tivo Central' button (and any other). Hard reboot #4
I had no problem starting several items and was seeing the "Maintenance" message earlier.
Doesn't leave a good impression for anyone. No excuse for it. Should timeout with an error message or something but not hang so a plug pull is necessary. Poor programming.
Working fine up here in Santa Rosa, Cashback in HD, full bars(13). Using Comcast with 16/2 service.
I'm going to guess that those with a vanilla DSL connection simply aren't going to have enough bandwidth to get any HD.
I'm VERY happy that this is active now! I also have an XBOX 360, but I didn't want to have to pay for their Gold service to stream Netflix.
By the way, thanks for the update TiVoStephen!
best thing since dual tuners
This has been working great for me this morning and tonight. I have DSL and the quality meter has been full for both SD and HD content. I thought I'd have subpar quality but it's been perfect so far. Thanks TiVo and Netflix
That's good to hear, I guess my assumption about DSL was off the mark.
Not as good as the Roku box, though, for watching old TV series.
The Roku box shows which episodes I have watched, and automatically selects the next one (or the current one if I'm only part-way through an episode). Although this information must be available (it's kept in the Netflix database) my TiVo doesn't use it, so I have to manually keep track of where I am in a series.
As the initial implementation I think it's a very good start. The good news in being an HME application is it's easy for Tivo to add new capabilities without needing to push new software to our boxes, so I think we will likely see updates over the next few months to add more features.
I was actually pleasantly surprised that in initial implementation one can already delete items from the list and use thumbs up/down for rating.
Halfway through the movie it went back to the main menu, had to start the stupid movie from the beginning.
Didn't anyone beta test this thing??
I think the servers a little overloaded right now... It's locked up/dropped out about 1/2 dozen times in the first 40mins of a 1:40 movie
