    Nearly every day (in the evening), when I select "APPS" on the BOLT menu, it shows a box in the bottom that says: "This TiVo box is no longer connected to the Internet. Some features may not be available. Press OK/SELECT for more information."

    When I press select, I can run the network connection, which works fine, but it still won't let me launch any app, or show the TODO list, or anything else on the MANAGE menu.

    The only solution is to restart the box, which is very annoying. Any ideas?

    What is the topology of your network and how is the Bolt connected to it.

    Also what is the output of the network diagnostic from your connected Bolt.

    Xfinity (Comcast) cable modem.
    I have tried both Wi-Fi and MoCA, with both an older modem and a new one I picked up yesterday. Currently, I'm using MoCA, which seems to working fine, as my wife is streaming a Prime Video right now.
    I'll have to get that later.

    Here's an easier way I found to fix the problem (temporarily): When it says the box is no longer connected to the Internet, I press the Netflix button on the remote. This loads Netflix successfully. I log into Netflix, and then exit. At this point I can access other apps (like Amazon and YouTube).

    Do you have power saving/Standby enabled? If so, try disabling it.

    As Scott said, Standby. I leave my TE4 Roamio in Standby since I'm not using it much. But next time try a soft reset:
    Thumbs Down
    Thumbs Up
    Play
    Play

    Works 100% of the time for me.
