    It's sad all the errors I've encountered trying to play from OnePass listings; let's see, once House of Cards showed up, I managed to get it to take me to Netflix where it just stuck, and made me press TiVo to go back, where I tried again, and then had to enter my username and password in Netflix.

    It seems not to have any clue when I've watched anything already; having to actually go through myself and clear out items in the OnePass list, even for the item I specifically started viewing from a OnePass menu. I certainly didn't expect it'd figure out what I might've watched from within Netflix menus, and I wasn't pleasantly surprised to find it did, either.

    Netflix at least will start an episode, eventually, from a OnePass menu, but seems to have issues allowing reliable maneuvering back through the UI once it's done.

    Amazon Instant Video streaming items just dump you into an Amazon Instant Video scree where you have to again select play.

    Half-assed, definitely. And a piss-poor experience.

    This is the sort of experience I'd expect in a closed beta. Not an early release. And definitely not a wide release. Every problem would be easily visible through even the barest level of testing.

    it worked for me, however useless and unproductive TIVO was in programming this. they have much more better work to do on the basic dvr, such as 15 minute tics always no matter how long a recording is, add a 4th speed and a screen saver, stop adding confirmation messages like what they just added for deletes. THEY ARE NUTS. AND IT WAS A FEATURE REQUEST THEY ACCEPTED. FROM FREAKING WHO? fix the audio delay when you go in and out of Tivo Central!!! and I WANT THE LAST FUNCTION LIKE THE COMCAST X1 HAS. i dont know what tivo does with the 15 bucks a month we give them. i been fighting with them for years. lousy developers and project managers, and i have been in IT for over 25 years

    so i did set up a onepass for Breaking Bad and House of Cards. it worked fine once i logged into netflix first...LOL. i usually use my bluray player for netflix. IT GETS 1080P. tivo, no (yes, not much diff i know, just the point). it actually put them in My Shows with all the episodes and all. there are some problems, but i guess if you get in and out alot, it is easier than using it in netflix. I dont know what much else its used for.

    comments anyone? :eek:

    Yeah, learn how to properly compose sentences. This isn't a stream of consciousness forum.

    Last thing I needed was for Tivo to think it was done improving the recording cable tv experience and could move on to other things like aggregate streaming services.

    Bumping this thread back, Longmire was just released on Netflix today and it still has not showed up in One Pass, looks like whatever data issue that was going on back in February still persists today.

    Yea, they really need to figure out how to fix this. It makes adding streaming options a bit pointless for newly streaming shows.

    The reason I would want to include streaming is to not have to monitor the streaming apps for when a show becomes available for streaming. If it takes a while for them to show up, then what's the point?

    So, I I do a search for Longmire today and see Season 4 is now not greyed out. Of course my currently Onepass STILL doesn't pick up this show.

    So I go into season 4 and tell it to add all of season 4 to My Shows. I go back to My Shows and HEY! Look, there's a Longmire folder now. I go into the folder and what do I see? Only SEVEN(7) of the TEN(10) episodes! It is missing episodes 2, 4 and 5. SO I go back to the season 4 and add each of those episodes individually and even tho it says it added them to My Shows, they are NOT showing up.

    Come on TIVO, get it together here.

    My One Pass picked it up today without me making any changes to it (I had it set from Season 1 on) but like you a few of the episodes are not available for streaming.

    I had mine set to season 4 only and new episodes only and got nothing (the 7 episodes that are in my folder now are marked as new).
