I know how you feel. If your TiVo recovers from this event. Don't let GC get so long in the tooth; force GC to run by one of the 3 patch methods. First choice; disconnect TiVo from internet. One to 4 days to get GC update (my experience) This does not interrupt recordings. Second choice; power down the "evil tuning adapter" (some here say a matter of hours) This can affect SDV reordings. Third choice; channel fix Takes a long time and requires interaction to complete.
