    Just bumping this thread since the problems still exist in the new year. Roamio Plus for xmas and when watching netflix for a bit at night it makes the tivo need a reboot to start working again. Been happening since xmas...

    Meanwhile netflix and my older tivo premier will work just fine during the same time..

    It makes the tivo roamio loose network connectivity even though the network is up. You can see that all network enabled things aren't working anymore. (hulu, youtube, etc.)

    I suspect you've got cause and effect reversed.

    The Roamio losing network connectivity (for whatever reason, such as bad connection or faulty hardware) is causing the Roamio to reboot while watching Netflix, based upon other folks experiences. So look and see if you can address that issue.

    I've had this issue occur to me on three occasions. In all instances, I was watching Netflix and pressed the Tivo button on the remote. I now press the live tv button and wait for the tv to resume normal live tv operation before pressing the Tivo button. The problem has not happened since.

    I had this happen today on my Roamio Pro. The TV show I was watching ended and it went back to the episode list, but the screen didn't fill in. The episode list was blank. The Roamio rebooted a few seconds later.

    This is the first time I've seen this. Other than this reboot, my Roamio has been stable as a rock. My box is on 20.3.8.

    haven't posted in forever since everything has been good with my TIVO Premier and TIVO Roamio.

    I am getting this issue.

    I can confirm it is when I press the TIVO Button.

    It has happened at least 4 times in the past month. Don't know if hte latest update introduced some instability.

    The TIVO has had

    - Netflix Paused or Running Video
    - Was Recording a Show and not recording shows

    Everytime this issue happens. The TIVO goes from the Netflix video a dark screen. Hangs on that screen for a good 20 seconds then reboots.

    The TIVO is directly connected to a wired switch Non Green Netgear.

    Never had issues with this till the past month and have watched entire seasons of shows with no problems before.

    Exact same problem here. Happened to me twice today. It doesn't matter if I back out by using the EXIT feature on the app or if I hit the Tivo button on my remote. Has anyone heard anything about this? I believe that it is just Tivo making a DVR that can't do all that they want it to, so it just reboots much like old computers used to do.

    The new software is being put out today, see if that will fix your re-boot problem.

    Today for the first to sign up for the priority list, when it went live again.

    The rest will roll out over time, in controlled phases, like every other update.

    I found this thread via Google. I just bought a Premiere and the FIRST time I tried Netflix, I exited pressing the TiVo button and the entire thing rebooted. Netflix was never great on my TiVo HD so I rarely used it (bought a Chromecast) - not sure if I'll be using it on my Premiere if it keeps rebooting the box. At least on my HD it just booted me to the main screen, not interrupting recordings.

    I'm running 20.4.4a which is the latest software.
