Tired of reboots Roamio Pro

Without a doubt my Roamio Pro is the most bug prone DVR I have ever one, that includes three Tivos and two Replay TVs. My Roamio just random reboots. Last night my Romanio rebooted at 9 PM while I was watching a recorded show, and sometime around 11:50 PM while I was recording Letterman, Leno and Kimmel. It's now to the point I have to dual record shows on my Tivo Premiere, and if recording more than otwo shows at once, then record shows three through whatever on the Roamio Pro and hope I don't see a reboot. Anyone else seeing random reboots?

I've only had mine for 5 days, but I've had 0 reboots.

Roamio for months. Not a single reboot. Settings screen shows uptime.

Three Roamios here, no random reboots.

I would call it in.

Reboots are not normal and not something you should have to tolerate. Call TiVo and get your box fixed or replaced.

I just did. I'm getting a replacement shipped, then I ship the defective unit back. Even though I have an extended warranty it's costing me $50 to exchange it.

I've had my Roamio Plus about a week.
Twice it has rebooted while I was looking around in the menus, selecting different functions.
I was thinking I just did something wrong.
It has taken a week just to get the cablecard & tuning adapter properly paired.
I am loathe to go through all of that again if I have to get a replacement.

I've had my Roamio Plus for about 3 months now and I've only had it unexpectedly reboot once. It was at the end of watching a recording when the pop-up box asks whether you want to delete or save the recording. For whatever reason the box just froze up there for a few seconds and then rebooted itself.
