Advertisements Python will work. Thanks for the info. I'll soak in the other thread later since I've been up all night. So for this to work there would need to be a permanent recordingID present (a show that is never deleted) or some way to push a new ID on and play it (maybe). It's funny because now that I have one Premiere on HDUI and one on SDUI they both refuse to give me any trouble. Hopefully by writing this I will Jinx myself or figure out how to force the freeze. That's the one thing that's always troubled me, why hasn't Tivo been able to trap the error as it occurred and deal with it that way? Thanks.
