    I have experienced 2-3 restarts with my RCA DVR 80 over the past week or so, and think there have been more. I went to watch a recorded show and it was only half there.
    Anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Since that's about the same age as the Series 2 non-satellite TiVos, chances are really good you've got capacitors going bad in the power supply.

    Fortunately it's a fairly easy and inexpensive fix if that is the source of your problem.

    Is the hard drive the same one with which it left the factory?

    If so, there's a really good chance that it's going bad as well.

    Yes. Everything is factory, the box has never been opened up.
    Guess it's time to unpack and setup my new Tivo.
