    There's likely a recording gap late-late night, or at least some point in the day. Probably ignores any recording suggestions in that period.

    I agree... it is highly unlikely that season pass recording is happening 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. TiVo will find a gap in the recording schedule and do a reboot.

    There are a few gaps but I'm usually recording several things even late at night and early in the morning. Even with six tuners I'm showing around a dozen conflicts now during each two week period. Although part of that is the New Shows SP I added.

    Mine rebooted around lunchtime today. It records much less during the day or atleast mine does.

    I don't think your usage is what TiVo usually sees or designs for.

    Thanks for the details Margret!

    Glad that the Fios cablecard issue can be fixed with software. :) Roamio gets better and better.

    I'm basing this on very old data, but I believe there's a 1-week failsafe. If there's no opening for an automatic reboot within a week it'll force it, presumably late at night.

    Probably not.
    It's after 2AM here and I see five shows being recorded right now. There were six shows being recorded until 2AM when The Night Gallery recording ended.

    And I see twelve more recordings scheduled between now and 9AM.

    How do you possibly have time to even watch all of that?

    I don't. I only watch a small percentage of what I record. I just like to have a lot of options when I sit down to watch something since I never know what I will be in the mood to watch.

    I could be in the mood to watch a specific title in the morning, and plan to watch it when I get home in the evening. But by the time I get home, I will be in the mood to watch something completely different.

    The more options I have, the more likely I will be able to find something to watch that I feel like watching at any specific time.

    And what's great is that there are more TV watching options now than at any time before. Of course on the flip side I have less time to watch content than I have in the past.

    :up::up:

    With a DVR it is easy to let watching TV become a "job". The reality is entertainment shows are for entertainment and we have to get into the mind set that not watching some of them is not any type of issue at all. Missing a show is really irrelevant and having a DVR is as aaronwt said just so we always have something to watch when we want to be entertained by TV. Of course "news" shows are more time sensitive but I can only take so much "news" in a day and certainly don't worry if I miss some of it.

    Hard to find time to reboot during a Breaking Bad marathon.

    Exactly. Mine rebooted during the short break AMC took in the marathon between 5 and 9 AM I believe.

    For anyone who wants to force the upgrade and wants to know whether they have enough time before their next show is scheduled to record, this may be helpful.

    I saw yesterday that my Pro was showing "Update Pending" and decided to tell it to re-start while timing it with a stop watch.

    From the time when the "Installing update. The will take a few minutes." screen was first displayed to the next screen was over 12 minutes.

    The total time before I was back to live TV was over 15 minutes.

    Would the update cause all 6 tuners to be tuned to the same channel? This morning, that was the case on my Plus. I checked, and my version is 20.3.6.2, but not sure if it updated last night, or the night before? I had nothing set to record overnight either night.

    I've had that happen before after some updates. They were all tuned to the first channel in my lineup.

    Any reboot to the Tivo causes all tuners to be on the same channel.

    If you want a way to find out IF your Tivo rebooted....go to Settings & Messages -> Account and System Info -> DVR Diagnostics.

    Scroll down till you get to the CableCard section and look for: Time since OOB Tune Start. This is in seconds and restarts when the Tivo reboots.
