    I've been having a weird audio problem that is kinda like the others mentioned, but not really.

    It only seems to surface when changing channels or rewinding/fast-forwarding/un-pausing.

    Full details can be seen here:

    The problem has persisted for almost 2 weeks now. I'll be calling TiVo to report the issue on Monday.

    My Tivo HD seems to crash/reboot a lot while viewing an HD channel - I have Comcast with 2 single-stream CableCards installed. Most ppl here seem to see crashes while in menus or other things - does it happen to you folks while just viewing?

    How do I force an upgrade to get this new 9.1 software?

    You can't. It has not been released yet, it is only in deployment trials so only a handful of people have it. In a couple of weeks, unless there are issues, they'll start deploying it widely and then you'll get it.

    So is 9.1 a beta or what? Does anyone know what features are in 9.1?

    No, it is in a pre-release phase right now. And yes, we do - find the threads discussing 9.1 in this forum and the Coffee House.

    I just got a TiVo HD and used it for a week or so with analog cable until the cards were installed. It worked fine without the cards, but now, when I get home from work, all the analog channels are blank, no video or audio. All the digital and HD channels work fine. When I reboot the TiVo HD, the analog channels come back. This has happened twice on consecutive days. Any idea on where I should look?

    I have a TiVo DT on the same splitter (the splitter from the cable co.) and it receieves the analog channels just fine.

    getting a little disgusted with my S3

    First I have a 30 to 45 second freeze up in the line up menu when I go to search for shows, tonight I don't know WTF happened, we were watching a recorded show in the now playing list and two shows started recording at 8 PM. It was just a few minutes after 8 and we started to watch another show that was already recorded and all hell broke loose, I could access all the menu’s but no video, no live TV nor tell if the shows that were scheduled to record at 8 were actually recording.

    I played with it a little while and then the colorful background just went grey and the menu looked like freakin DOS!!!

    OK, at this point I knew it needed to reboot but the red lights on the front looked like they were recording so figured I’d wait till 10 because I had two more shows also recording from 9 – 10 PM.

    I rebooted it at 10 and it came back up fine, all 4 shows from the 8 til 9 and the 9 til 10 time slots were all recorded and saved but we still wasted the whole evening because we couldn’t access anything.

    Haven’t decided for sure yet but I may RMA the thing, I’m going to set my old one (series 2) back up and record the same shows on it that I am on the series 3 till I see if it happens again. This way I’ll still have my shows on the old box if I decide to send the series 3 back with shows I didn’t get a chance to watch at that point on the S3.

    My TiVoHD is recording repeats on season pass, even though it's set to first run only. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or it's a bug.
