    I haven't used the Tivo for Netflix much since the recent Netflix update to group TV series into one listing instead of seasons. However, now it seems that shows over a certain number of episodes just randomly pick and choose episodes until it fills up to about 100. South Park is a good example. You can't watch any ep you want, only the 100 they picked. Anyone else have this issue?

    :mad::thumbsdown:

    This on top of still no 5.1 is making Tivo my 3rd or 4th choice for Netflix, and thus for usage.

    thanks. I ran a search but apparently didn't think it would have fallen that far on the search list.

    I have called Netflix about this issue and they said that watching the episodes listed, such as watching from the first episodes and going down the list, the other episodes will show up while the watched episodes will disappear.

    Example is I have been watching MacGyver episodes and am currently on season 4. much of the season 2 episodes had disappeared leaving the first and last, some of season 1 disappeared, season 3 also but leaving a few episodes.

    Here is a tip to note what episodes has been watched, when you are finished with that episode, just hit REW then skip to tick mark to a point more then 5 minutes from the end or anywhere before. The episode list will show 'Resume playing' and that is how I keep track of what's watched and what's not. Its better then trying to remember which episode had been watched and when you go watch it, 'I've watched that one last time.'

    It's just painful. I liked separate seasons in separate folders, neater and cleaner, and easier to navigate.

    And you still can, but it requires the hd ui. You just use the episode guide under each show.

    I read the whole thread. If they cared it would be fixed by now.

    While yes it is a problem for those who run the sdui and those on older TiVos, it works fine via search which is something TiVo has been pushing since the launch of the Premiere.

    How do you suggest they fix Netflix's change?

    Ummm.....the same way that almost every other device that streams Netflix was able to. It can't be that difficult to simply display all of the episodes in the queue.

    The Netflix app on Tivo only consists of a queue.....it should work correctly.

    Even my Netgear Digital Entertainer Live (uses PlayOn), now has a subfolder/menu for each season.

    My friend's Samsung Blu-Ray, c5500 I believe, drive just updated and it is the same as TiVo. 100 episodes with the first and second episodes in later seasons.

    I PAY Tivo for the privilege of using my box every month. They owe me more than Samsung.

    Last time I checked I am entitled to what I pay for. Netflix usage is part of the TiVo service.
