    If Clear Program information & To Do List didn't do it, try Kickstart 58

    To prevent this from happening again. Put your tuning adapter on a timer.

    that tivo ta is on a timer but i think its set to be off for 1 hour.

    looks like i will be switching wmc with ceton InfiniTV 4 PCIe. sometime this month. it will give me 4 channels cable and 2 ota channels antenna.
    I wish tivos new 4 tuner tivo had ota. i would of bought one already

    i will still be using both tivos but one will be antenna only.

    There is no benefit to putting a TiVo on a timer.

    It's the TA that needs to be disabled long enough for the TiVo to be able to do garbage collection.

    Mine takes a 4 hour off window for TiVo to complete GC.
    Even then, it only occurs every other day.
