(The Tivo is connected to a Marantz 8801 processor via HDMI, which is in turn connected to my TV.)
Uncheck the 1080p (pass-thru-only) option in the Video Settings.
Settings > Video > Video Output Format
And only check 1080i (or also 720p if you wish, I only use 1080i) The Premiere Series 4 CPU does not handle 1080p(24) very well.
It looks like TiVo actually disabled 1080p(24) for Netflix in the latest SW update SW Vers 184.108.40.206a
1080p (pass-thru-only) used to work with Netflix on the Premieres, I am not sure if it was a TiVo SW update that broke it or Netflix Super HD, but it quit working about the same time my provider got access to Netflix Super HD, The Premieres started to constantly switch resolutions between 1080p(24) and 1080i.
