S3: remote partially working; same problem on "network" remote app and front buttons

    Original S3 (with OLED display)
    My remote is occasionally only partially working; a system restart fixes it (have to pull the plug, can't navigate menus to restart).

    When this happens, it affects the IR remote (peanut) and also the network remote via iPad or iPhone app connecting as a virtual remote, and the buttons on the front of the TiVo.

    So I'm wondering if this is some strange state the TiVo software gets into, rather than a remote problem?

    What doesn't work: TiVo button, select, record, live TV (sort of works, doesn't switch tuners)
    What works: arrows, numbers, channel changing, pause, play, thumbs down/up, rewind 8 secs, skip forward, a few others.

    This has happened 3 times in last week now.

    I recently upgraded to a new hard disk from WeaKnees, the old disk had died and would not boot.

    Anybody ever heard of something like this? Any ideas on how to get TiVo and select remote button presses to work again?
