    Have 3 Roamios on a home network. Cat 5e cable connected to each and a new Netgear high speed switcher just installed. More often than not, when I try to pull up the programs from a different Tivo a blue dot circle will appear and spin for 5-30 seconds before pulling up the shows on the other TiVo. The display is no longer high resolution but rather something that looks like an old DOS display in different shades of blue. Unplugging the unit and restarting it (or both) will usually solve the problem for a little while but it more often than not will come back. Tivo had me do 2 connects on all my Tivos following by a reboot but that didn't solve the problem. Anyone have an solutions I'd love to hear them.

    Any chance using any of these kickstart codes will cause me to loose any of my shows? Just bought a new WD Red 3TB to upgrade my 3rd TiVo but I haven't transferred the shows I'm keeping before I do the upgrade. Which codes do you recommend trying for this problem? I'm wondering if my 5 port switchers could be the cause of the problem? I have them at all 3 Roamios since there are other ethernet devices that also need to connect to the network at those locations. But, they've been in place since I got the Roamios and this situation has only recently become problematic.
