I Player is unwatchable on my Tivo. It freezes about every minute for several seconds.
The TiVo box is quite old now, and whilst remaining perfectly serviceable, the iPlayer app was never its strong point. Certainly better to record your programmes if possible, than rely on the app.
Having said that, do you see any flashing green lights on the front-left of your TiVo when you have problems? That could indicate the inbuilt 'net connection has failed, and anything that uses the internet will have issues then.
Also why are so many of my recordings only available on I Player and no simple recordings?
Recordings are just that - recordings, they are stored on your hard drive. The iPlayer is a streaming app. The two are different beasts - although if you have OnDemand "bookmarks", they do intentionally look & feel like recordings within your "my shows" view.
There's two ways you could have these "recordings"..
1: You've manually created one, by finding a programme in the EPG and choosing "create bookmark"
2: Having a series link that includes streaming videos as well as recordings, and there's no recordable episodes currently available.
