    Roamio was working fine the first day but now when I go to "what to watch now" I get the spinning circle then the error....already tried to restart it but no help...internet is fine on everything else so I don't think that's it, havent called support yet , wanted to see what you guys thought...

    Edit: when I try "new movies to watch now " I don't get that error code but I get spinng circle after spinning circle and it seams to lock it up for a short while....my 30 day trail is starting off a little rough...

    It's not just you. Some Tivo server problems overnight. I'm on hold right now, trying to reach a support rep.

    think your wasting your time , I just got off the phone and was told they are "too busy to get to me since I need tier 2 help " and it will be "3 to 5 days" ...I told him it was 1 day old and on a 30 day trial and if that was the way its gona be, just send me the return boxes now...that's pretty bad imo...

    I finally got thru to customer support, and everything seems to be working right now. Had to power-cycle (not just restart) all my boxes (Roamio Pro/minis). The official support recovery procedure was: forced connections (twice), power-cycle, force connection (didn't exactly follow this, since I'd already forced connections before I called).

    I just got mine up and running again too.
    The fix was to unplug, replug, network settings, connect and download.
    I had tried this when I first encountered the problem about 3 hours ago and it didn't fix anything, but now just did it again while on the phone with Tivo and it worked. Who knows.

    It affected me also, a Comcast subscriber in Philly area. Rebooted a few times and it seems to be working OK again.

    mine seams to have fixed itself , but I still did the force connect, unplug, force connect just to be sure...so far I like it but if its not reliable (and phone support sure dosent seam to be) then I may have to bail in 28 days...we'll see I guess...(these things don't really bother me but they DO bother the wife , who THEN bothers me)

    Same here. While on the phone with support, and first being told it could take days for resolution, my wife started yelling (in the background), quickly convincing the rep to check their servers, and come up with the immediate power-cycle fix.

    We really have had very few tech issues with Tivo, over a dozen years and several generations of their products. Of all my tech toys, the Tivos are the only things my wife uses more than I do.

    It's always ironic that when the TiVo servers go down, the official TiVo Status page always says everything is good, I believe it is just a static page that never changes, and is not really linked to any server.

    My thing is , why not just tell people there is a server problem? Surely they knew that when I called as I doubt I was the first one , "yes , we are aware of the problem and are working on it " thats all I would need , not "we'll get back to you in 3 to 5 days , we are very busy"... because when I told the wife that she told me to return it and go back to DirecTV...
