The fact that it crashed is even more worrisome. It's beginning to have the earmarks of a failing hard drive. If it gives you some more grief you might want to consider running some of the Kickstarts, particularly KS54 (SMART). It's not fool-proof but it may give you an indication of pending HDD failure. http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showpost.php?p=5643823&postcount=2 It may be nothing but I'd start preparing for a worst case situation by transferring any recordings you can't live without (TiVo Desktop or KMTTG) JIC.
