    Well, I am certain that nobody can actually help with this issue, but I at least thought I'd mention it here.

    Yesterday, while watching a show on our Premiere, the TiVo suddenly shut off, rebooted, and when it came back it was like it was a brand new TiVo, asking us what country we live in, etc. Had to go through the entire new setup, and once we did, the new interface was there.

    Unfortunately, none of our shows were. We lost everything. Months of shows we were storing up - gone.

    Anyone else have this problem? It was really heartbreaking... I love my shows and some (like my soap opera, which I was about 28 days behind on) I can't find anywhere to watch online. :(

    Ouch! that sucks. Anything at all in the Now Playing? Did your Season Passes survive?

    You might switch back to the SD interface select Messages & Settings > Settings > Displays > Choose TiVo Menus > TiVo with SD Menus

    Nope... nothing at all survived. Nothing in Now Playing, no season passes. It was like it was reformatted... brand new TiVo, had to go through the entire setup.

    <whimpers very sadly>

    That's nuts!

    Have you called TiVo to see what they say?
    You give them your TSN, maybe they can look at their logs.

    Sadly, no. I got all excited thinking this was the problem... but I switched the menus and still, all the shows are lost. :(
    I suppose I can call support, but again, it's like we formatted the TiVo to re-sell it or something, it wiped it completely clean of all of our information - like it was fresh out of the box. But it might be interesting if they can pull logs to see what happened.

    Wah :(
