    About a week ago, HDVR2 running 6.2a (not hacked) began rebooting occasionally, most recently 3 nights in a row between 7 and 8 pm EST.

    Noticed that receiver was not responding to remote a lot of the time ... changed batteries but did not resolve issue. After pressing the pause button several times attempting to pause a program that was playing, the receiver suddenly rebooted.

    Have researched threads here but do not see this combination of issues... sound familiar to anyone? Thanks.

    edit: Bought a new peanut remote from Weaknees, issue persists. Receiver doesn't respond to 50% of commands from remote.

    I've experienced this on my HDVR2 model and peanut-remote.
    Sometimes another infrared source in the room will 'jam' the
    communication between the peanut-remote and the TiVo receiver.
