    Here's a feature that I've come across a couple times.

    I have to occasionally reboot my router or Comcast has a glitch, so I understand that while the internet is down my options for Amazon, HuluPlus, NetFlix, etc will disappear from the menu. The problem is I can't get them to come back without rebooting even though I can go back to searching and getting suggestions.

    Is there a way to get TiVo to put the streaming services back without reboot?

    When it happens occasionally just unplug the RJ45 from either the wall/router/ or Tivo itself. Within 30 seconds all services will be restored. No need to reboot the router.

    Actually, all you need to do is restart the HD GUI; From TiVo Central, press thumbs down, thumbs up, play, play. The screen will go black, and the HD GUI will restart; all streaming icons returning.

    Have you tried just using the SDUI instead of the HDUI? I suspect that it may be related to that buggy interface.

    It's the TiVo that I'm having to reboot, not the router.

    Ah ha! That does it...<Sigh> The HD TiVo Menus offer some much needed modernization and more efficient use of space. I wish TiVo would get their act together and get them working well.

    I don't have a Premiere, but on my TivoHD, to get at least netflix and other net-related stuff back, all I have to do is do a TEST service connection.

    (I have the ethernet cable unplugged a lot of the time, since somehow it seems like it's rebooting less often with it unplugged -- downloading podcasts is often crashing my Tivohd.)
