    Under the HDUI, there is only one search.

    If the customer switches back to classic, then they have all classic functionality available, including title search, without an Internet connection.

    I just started having that same problem last night. It locked up once while scrolling through my queue and then every time I tried to watch a movie it would lock up for a couple of minutes then restart itself. Last week I had been streaming Netflix with no problems. Last night was the first time I've tried watching a Netflix movie since last Thursday so it may have something to do with the 14.1c update that occurred over the weekend. My other network functions, Youtube, and MRV are still working fine and I'm still able to connect to TiVo so I don't think it's my network.

    Do you have to reset your router and re-setup your TiVo's network connection after TiVo locks up in order to access the network again?

    Until they remove the classic interface.... (I assume that will happen at some point, since they will want to force people to be able to see their additional advertising, and will want to stop having to maintain the classic interface)

    On the older units you could get the intro by pressing the TiVo button followed by the "0" key. Have you tried that?

    TiVo told me the classic interface would always remain an option for those without (a) broadband Internet, and/or (b) HDTVs.

    I never got a notice, but browsing here I looked and I'm at 14.1c. I switched back to HDUI and things do seem improved, at least with the top level menus/functions. There's some waiting with the green circle thing, but the menus feel much more responsive. I'll keep it at HDUI for a few days and see if it's tolerable. So far, so good.

    pucket,

    Was this a real lock-up or just a waiting for downloads thing. i.e. did you have the ZOOM! thing in the video window?

    I ask because I have not had one lock up since th update, but my intermittent network issue causes green circles for up to two minutes before the system frees itself up. This is a separate issue. Due to how TiVo handles the graphics for the show you have highlighted and the discovery bar. If your network is bogged down and the tivo can't retrieve what it's looking for, it will just......wait.....

    To me that a problem, I would the TiVo to just put a place-mat down after 1/2 second or less of no Internet response than try again after some time, keep the TiVo working even if the Internet is down, I know some functions will not work but that should not stop you from the functions that can work without an Internet connection like getting to and watching a recorded program or going through your list of now playing programs etc.

    Should people not complain about the "greatest thing to ever come to Television" according to Tivo?

    The Premiere, of which I will most likely be buying (out of full disclosure), was marketed with huge fanfare and has completely missed the mark to Tivo's most established and core customers, which is the people on this board.

    To someone new to Tivo, they probably would have a negative view of the unit if they had to deal with the plethora of problems these units have.

    The one thing about this board that has always bothered me is that some Tivo employees come on and announce things that are positive to the company (which is fine), but they keep quiet when there is anything negative. How about some updates to quell the fears and perhaps keep people from returning so many units to Tivo and to stores.

    These forums are a FREE source of customer feedback for Tivo and I just wish they would provide more updates on fixes to the problems that have been surfaced.

    Well, counting on a third party internet connection so much is just waiting for a disaster.

    They need to cache data/icons/pictures, etc. They need to display place boxes, THEN fill them in.

    Expecting a high speed connection at all times is really bad

    Microsoft does that, Windows stalls when the connection dies. They should queue up the rqst and go on....

    I get my premiere tonight. I hope I am not disappointed. I'll probably end up in old mode

    I got it mostly for network speed of pulling shows off of it

    I have twitter but really never used it.

    How do you 'tweet' someone. I am seeing lockups, reproducable with a specific file.

    I try to transfer it from a TivoHD (MP4/AC3) and it errors with 'Cannot transfer, error #86'. Then if I hit only option 'Don't do anything', it locks up bigtime. Needs powerplug pull at that point.

    You don't have to use twitter - you can follow the instructions above and send Margaret an email.

    Unless you are using TiVo Desktop Plus, more than likely you won't get resolution for this. You inclusion of codec information (MP4/AC3) tends to make me believe you are using pyTivo or Streambaby to transfer. Since those are 3rd Party RYO applications, TiVo support won't be able to troubleshoot them. If you are using TiVo Desktop Plus, I think the codec type would be irrelevant because I believe TDP transcodes video files into mpeg2 before or during transfer...

    Nope. Just last night I ordered a HD rental from Amazon OD (to be intended to be viewed immediately) and it did download instantly. However, it did take a while before it was completely downloaded (like 1-2 hours) so it did kind of defeat the purpose of the "On Demand". My AppleTV almost shows the HD on demand movies instantly after ordering them.

    I did notice however, while I was going back & forth between the different menu's that the Amazon download-in-progress disappeared from my NPL. However, a few minutes later it was there again.

    well, the mp4/ac3 was wrong.

    These are tivo to TIVO transfers, MRV. I do use pytivo, but this is not related to it. These items are on tivo 1 transferred From a pytivo nas server. Once they are on Tivo 1, I can play them, etc, but cannot MRV them to tivo 2 (the tivoPremier).

    Anywayz, saying that, I figured it out. These are files on a 'hacked' tivoHD, with encryption off (It was off and hacked for exactly 2 weeks). Trying to transfer using MRV, an unencrypted show causes this.

    The solution is to use Tivo Desktop to xfer the file from tivo 1, to the pc. It loads as a .tivo file, then you can use Tivo 2 to browse the Tivo Desktop location and pull it that way. That works fine.

    The reason this works is that xfer using tivo desktop (or any web client for that matter), strips the tivo encryption and puts on an external DRM encryption, which seems to be smart enough to allow unencrypted input and still puts the drm on the output.
