    Mine froze up SOLID with a black screen when back-starting - with a bunch of backup commands - an Amazon VOD movie as two recordings were ending. No commands on buttons did a thing other than light up the front panel light. Even pushing the panel TiVo button didn't work. Just as I was about to pull the plug, the recordings ended at the the top of the hour and the TiVo boopped like it was processing the backed up commands and then all was normal. I watched the VOD. It was like the TiVo was CPU bound at 100%.

    I discovered on a later no audio then freeze after a live tuner change that one jumpback will clear it.

    Local HD channels are clear-QAM. Why the distinction?

    When I said locals, I meant OTA.

    Tribune -- used by Moxi -- already provides mapping and program information for off-air locals. I have no idea whether the mapping implementation on the Moxi works with any channel, or only those channels without guide data.

    I disconnected my WD DVR expander and all the problems disappeared. I returned the DVR Expander to WD and they sent me a new one. I hooked it up and the problems returned. I believe that this is a Tivo software problem, and will not hook up the Expander again until they get the bugs out.

    Good points bktv on the moxi. Tivo does have more features and support, but the bugs and broken software drive me crazy. I also think the interface is not as clean hd widescreen as other DVR products like the moxi.

    I'm not sure why the guide is not 16:9 on the tivo and why the menus are not in widescreen HD. Maybe it is lack of processing power in the TIVO.

    I know how you feel. My S3 just started with some odd behavior and now full freezes when I try to enter VOD. It took me 2 reboots before it dawned on me that I'd probably gotten a software "upgrade". Sure enough I did.

    Does Tivo have any programmers on the payroll anymore or did they all get laid off to pay legal fees for the trial that never ends?

    They probably outsourced/offshored the programming to India or some other far away place where they don't have a clue how to write robust, reliable apps, but they'll do it very cheaply.

    The "resolution" bug is still there.

    (When you change channels, the info banner that appears reports the resolution of the last channel you were tuned to as the resolution of the current channel. Thus if you were watching a 480i channel and tune to a 1080i channel, the banner will report the new channel is 480i, and if you switch back it will report the 1080i channel is 480i.)
