Help 1: I have Tivo Bolts and a new Generation Tivo Mini Vox. The bug is that MP3 music playback stutters. The stutters start after about 15 minutes of playback. Before that, Playback is fine. After that I get several roughly 1 second stutters per song. The longer playback continues, the worse the stutter gets.
Help 2: That sounds exactly like my issue… There doesn’t seem to be any help for this, so apparently the Plex music transcoder doesn’t function too well?
Help 3: I’m having the same problem with my TiVo Bolt. I’m using .flac files (lossless audio format) and it seems to take a while for it to start happening. Once it does, it seems to me that it happens more and more often until I have to exit the app and start over again.

- If you store your files in a format that is direct playable on the tivo, you can leave direct play on all the time and you will also find your video library works much better on the tivo.
