no reboots since i turned the clock on
Good to know it's not just me.
Started rebooting about a week ago and normally you would guess it, most inconvenient times too, while recording.
Roamio Pro, no external drive.
Mine has connected a few times since the 13th (Date of your post) I checked.
Last reboot was last night March 16th.
I've had about a half dozen random reboots on my Roamio Pro in the last 4 weeks or so. The latest was last night while recording The Mentalist (actually during the padded second hour).
I thought this was recently resolved, but I'm not so sure.
Had problems with ramdon reboots on Roamio Pro. Had unit replaced last month, have not had a random reboot since.
Now this is odd
Same time frame when mine rebooted?
More random reboots with the Mini in our great room.
Had another one last night at approximately 8:20pm CDT. Anyone else have issues around this time?
No reboots last night
My crappy Comcast Motorola DVR never had this problem. Come on Tivo get this resolved its not rocket science!:down:
Well, it's actually harder than rocket science, given the fact that Hitler used rockets on England during WW II and we sent a man to the moon in 1969. We didn't get TiVo and ReplayTV until 1999. You do the math! (I read that here in the forums not too long ago, so it must be true.)
Tivo don't know the problems exists till we say the exists now they know and will take time to fix.
I've been with Tivo since 2001 and each box has been the same way, when its new just like an iPhone or Windows OS you have little problems that need to get patched.
But the patch just takes time
Series 1, 2 and now 3 all had issues but all got resolved in due time and in a reasonable time frame.
Let me rephrase:
Come on Tivo get this resolved its not like putting a man on Mars.
I've deleted the 2 parts now, but I'd estimate it was around 11:30 PM EDT, Sunday 3/16/14.
We'll what time was the mentalist on? EDT would have been 10 to 11 PM so no, was an hour earlier here for me and the 2 parts I had to delete was to the show resurrection during the 8 to 9 PM CDT
within the first two weeks of January, the video from My Roamio Plus would freeze for between 5 to 15 seconds, the remote would not work (but amber LED would flash as if receiving input) and the DVR would finally reboot.
The DVR had not experienced a freeze/reboot for about 2 months, until this past weekend when on Saturday 03-15-2014 they began again (multiple times a day).
I'd assumed TiVo had addressed the problem with an update, but it appears a more recent update had "Un-fixed" it.
Mentalist was 10-11 PM EDT, padded for 1 hour. The second part of the padded recording was, IIRC, 24 minutes, meaning it started at 11:36 PM EDT. What I don't know is how long it took the Roamio Pro to reboot and start recording again, so I estimated 6 minutes and said the reboot was around 11:30 PM EDT.
Yea, there's an hour difference between us and taking that into account our reboots were approx. 2 hours appart

I didn't even have to email her, as a scheduled service connection, and my own routine "when I don't know what else to do" procedure, has stopped any of my three base Roamios from rebooting. I ran all the KS54 SMART tests first, as well as running all available SMART tests using a PC and the drive manufacturer's tools.
My added routine is described in this post, and has been updated, as of now: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=10038994#post10038994
My roamio rebooted at the end of a recording on friday 3/28 at 7:58 pm while I was starting to watch xfinity on demand.
I'd have to say it's isolated or another issue.
Been two weeks I think as of today since my last reboot.
Connect to the service and make sure you have the update
Might want to add "while paused" to this list. Paused a show and noticed a few minutes later while in the other room the TiVo boot music was playing. Haven't noticed this in several weeks.
