    9:58PM ET, rebooting again. Same show, same channel. Made it about 56 minutes this time. It must really dislike Modern Marvels; this is the worst rebooting yet.

    9:58 p.m. (EST) reboot - All three of our receivers both rebooted at the same time. One was tuned to Monday Night Football on ESPN. The other units were off when they rebooted (unsure what channel), and my son and husband turned them both on and found the "Powering Up" screen.

    Two more reboots In the last 15 minutes. I am now sentimental for the good old days of 1-2 reboots per day.

    8:58 pm - all 4 units restarting at the same time again.


    At this point should we unplug the units to prevent some other kind of damage from this?

    Ditto -
    :58 after the hour on an old R10 box. My wife is not very happy because we were 5 minutes behind on The Voice and her boy Dez Duron was singing some Michael Buble.

    As a (relative) newbie to this forum, thanks to everyone for the work so far with DirecTV & the TiVo community for making it easy to find answers & solutions. I was around for the last DirecTV issue a few years back, and this place and couple other forums kept me from ripping my R10 apart and rebuilding it.

    Two reboots in 15 minutes for me too. Could it be they're actively working on it right now? Nah, probably not.

    near continuous reboots tonight here as well, very sad situation. they acknowledge the problem & most likely have it within their power to return the guide datastream to the per-destructive data; but noooooooooo

    The 9:58 reboot made it all the way to 97% detecting Satellites and rebooted again.

    As of now, that second reboot has finally finished and the TV is back. For now.

    Both my series 2 TIVO DVR's rebooted at exactly 9:58 PM EST !!!

    Take a minute and read the threads in front of this one -
    Notice how many have rebooted at almost + - 9:58PM EST.

    Simply cannot understand WHY Direct cannot figure this out !!!

    They say they have their engineer's working on this - are these the same guys who work for AMTRACK ?????

    Willing to betthat this will not be fixed until sometime next week -
    Any takers ?

    Last time it tookthe 6 weeks to fix the problem.

    There are region uplink centers for the locals and so I think people that get their locals through the same uplink sites may be getting the data error and crash at the same times, then on the national channels we have also have seen that people that are on the same transponders are seeing the problem at the same times, and I think whatever is triggering all this just keeps repeating from one transponder to the next, then it starts all over again. They need to stop broadcasting this trigger or tell the tivo to ignore it, its looks like they are opting for the latter as a solution, which is going to take a long time to perfect, roll out, and implement. And that is entirely unacceptable as a solution since has now been 12 days.

    This is like some cruel joke now, day 13 and 13 reboots to come I am afraid.

    Get ready to protest the charges because they are not promising any programming refund.

    They claim ~30 million customers. I suspect we represent an insignificant subset of the 30mil. Even if we could jamb their lines for a couple of minutes it wouldn't make ripple in their pond.
