How to reboot your TiVo by recording a program every time
I found a reliable, repeatable way to crash the Roamio Pro... Just start watching a channel with no guide data (it only says "To be announced" in the current time slot and nothing in the right column at all). After a few seconds on recording, the TiVo reboots, and there's no record of anything having been done after it comes back up. Works on channel 156 on TWC in Brooklyn (News 12) every time.
