    I have had the TiVo Roamio OTA for about 45 days or so. It is real laggy FF & RR. Meaning after I press the remote 3-5 seconds before it responds.



    Is this a common problem?
    Any fix besides rebooting it?

    Thanks for your help.

    When playing what type of content? DVR, buffered live TV, streaming?

    Personally I haven't seen any delay using our Roamio OTA, and it is at least as fast as our old Premiere. It sounds like you could have a defective unit and might want to try and get a replacement under warranty.

    Have the same problem here. When it occurs it's usually when I'm using the fastest FF. I think I've noticed that the led on the remote is red instead of yellow when this is happening but I'm not sure. I'm too busy frustratingly bashing the play or pause button trying to get it to stop.

    Red is IR. Amber is RF.

    Indeed. The question is why is it using IR (if that is what is happening)

    It's a long-standing issue since the Roamio and RF remote was introduced. I've never seen a resolution, other than getting Tivo to send a new remote (which may or may not be the actual problem). Mine will occasionally drop out of RF and and into IR. Once I point the remote back at the Tivo and get one valid IR command, RF begins working again with no problem.

    I have never experienced this on my Roamio OTA.

    Pretty much all of it that you stated. Recorded shows have problems, using online streaming services like netflix etc.


    Watching live TV it stops for a few seconds to 10-15 seconds not even using the reote. OTA signal strength shows it is up there. Originally I thought that was my antenna but then the signal strength shows good.


    Just got off the phone with them and they are sending out a different one. Hope it works better.
