    Well that sucks. But better for it to die quickly than to die after 4 weeks or 4 months. Now that I'm reliant on my Romaio Pro for all my recordings it would suck if it died on me.

    What went dead? Power supply, hard drive, something else?

    Yes, it definitely good that it happened in the first 30 days. Tivo has already shipped out a new one for me.

    It does not power on. No lights on the front. Maybe a bad power supply.

    Luckily, I was actually planning on transferring all my shows to it today, so I barely lost anything.

    Clearly the shows that takeagabu told the Roamio to record was NOT to the Roamio likely; so, it ended itself to stop the torture. I hope if I get a Roamio it will have more tolerance for bad shows and of course puns.

    I just called tivo, and apparently they have never seen it before either.

    So how are you serving up your media to all of your TVs? I think you said you have a server full of ISOs and I assumed you were using the Tivos to view them. That is what has stopped me from going the Roamio/Mini route.

    That message is usually reserved for Plane crashes. Like the UPS place that crashed in August, killing the 2 pilots.

    I haven't heard of an air crash in DFA in the last few days

    I have several media players to play back my BD ISOs. I don't use my TiVos for anything other than the apps on them and for TiVo recordings. I will transfer TiVo recrodings back and forth between a PC with TiVo Desktop, but that is about it.

    Wow that sucks! I had a package lost once because a UPS truck got robbed. It had a similarly weird message in the tracking. The company I bought it from made good and reshipped.

    I also received a strange UPS tracking status update recently. This particular package never arrived after whatever constituted the emergency.

    I always thought "emergency conditions" meant ice, snow, blizzard, or hurricane, but this happened on a sunny summer day. :)

    Anything could be an emergency. Some guy at a UPS warehouse who accidentally wiped out a bunch of stuff with a forklift is probably an emergency.

    As to transportation accident, I know that a bunch of packages here in Colorado are under-water right now and probably were flagged as emergency or transportation accident.

    Or maybe Hopper and his little sidekick Joey pounced on that thing and pulverized it to dvr dust with those long, strong legs o' theirs? Those angry kangaroos have quite a temper you know! :p

    Well, it is true that everyone I know who works for Dish Network is pretty unhappy with how things are run at that place, so I would imagine that their kangaroos are pissed off at upper management too.

    I chatted with UPS and they implied that it was a car accident. And they need to inspect every package before they could continue.
