Advertisements I don't know when this changed. It used to be if your Internet connection was down, your TiVo would have all sorts of BSCs (Blue Spinning Circles) even when you tried to playback already recorded shows. I used to have to disconnect the ethernet wire to get it to stop with the BSCs. Today I happen to have Internet issues and my connection is down. Surprisingly I can still playback shows with no BSCs. There is just a blank image for stuff it needs to download in real-time.
