    Has anyone seen this? Lately my Now Playing screen will "blink" every 3 seconds. By blink, I mean all of the words turn off, then turn on. It's kind of a slow strobe. This happens intermittently - I have noticed it mostly in the evening. It occurs on BOTH of my Tivo's when it's happening. Both Tivo's are connected within my home via Ethernet cable to a Cox cable fiber connection (Cox calls it "Gigablast").

    It's disconcerting, though not disruptive, in the sense that I can still choose a show and it will come on. Rebooting seems to stop it for a while, but it will come back.

    Thanks in advance,

    Rob from AZ

    Yup, that link describes it all. I will start posting in that link so the issue doesn't get scattered over too many forums...thanks!

    It blinks when it reloads the SkipMode data. However, it certainly shouldn't be doing it every 3 seconds.

    Yeah occasionally it gets stuck in some sort of loop like that video shows. Only seen it happen that one time on my Mini. Never seen it on my Roamio.

    It flashes for me when I check the TiVo suggestion folder on my Premiere from my Roamio.
