    Switched on the TV to the TiVo input today, and it said this on the screen:

    Fedora release 10 (Cambridge)

    Santa Login:

    I posted a picture of it here (but can't post links, so remove spaces):

    I didn't have a way to type, but was hoping the password was "Christmas" :)

    Pulled the power and forced a reboot and it seems to be working fine.

    I suspect that was your cable company and not your TiVo.

    I got something very similar for over a year every time Comcast issued an EAS message (Emergency Alert System). Obviously things were goofed up at their end. Mine was a RedHat linux login, but the machine name included "comcast" in it, so I knew where the source was. The screen would end once the weather warning or test was over in my case.

    You know that you've just taken all the fun out of Christmas by revealing that there is no TiVo Easter Egg, right?
