This has been my experience as well. It's annoying, but usually just takes a few seconds to exit back to Tivo central, then replay the recording from the place it booted me out. However, last night I got the V87 error while watching the late news while it was still recording. Recording ended at 10:35 and V87 error appeared as usual. I was through about 2/3 of the show. Did my normal routine of going back to Tivo central and lo and behold - there was no option to restart the recording from where I left off. It apparently lost its place and the only option was to play from beginning. This has never happened to me before and I hope it isn't another new "feature".
