Does the sequence care what screen, or function the TiVo might still be in, before it has had time to fallback to LiveTV mode, or what screen you would be at if you hit back from LiveTV mode?

I've seen the same thing again, where the TiVo right in front of me locks-up, as I had used the hand remote just minutes before, but a TiVo on a TV that is turned off, and hasn't seen a remote command in an hour just reboots.

I have noticed that there is sometimes noticeable lag-time between commands received and the TiVo acting on the commands. Maybe that 3 second sleep might be better at 5 seconds, as long as that doesn't create anything more than 2 seconds more until the reboot starts.

I'll keep an eye on things. Since I know how to check if a TiVo has started a reboot, without having to walk out to it, and know how to unfreeze one, if the function freezes it, I'm fine with leaving it alone. If I couldn't unfreeze one without pulling the power, like the other posts I saw in the update threads, I'd just quit using it.

Cisco tuning adapters should never be used inline (using the TA coax OUT port) to connect a TiVo, if MoCA is in use. Use a splitter w/PoE filter on leg to TA, use other leg for the TiVo. Enjoy!

After numerous days and hours of trying different methods found via Google search and the oxymoronish Java Help website and rebooting said PC between each attempt you mean? Heard Oracle Java has an offline uninstaller that I've been unable to find and it's a known problem according to a couple I.T. people I've talked to. Something about a reg-edit needed. Just haven't found the time yet to get to it.

When I find it I'll let you know that you didn't.

Thanks for the help.

Tried both 32 and 64 bit versions of jre-7u55, 65, 67, 71 and 8u25. Stupid java update says (depending on bitness and version, either);
1) Installation failed. The wizard was interrupted before Java v# Update v# could be completely installed.
2) Close Programs to Continue. The programs listed are currently using Java. They must be closed so that Java files can be updated. (list of programs is either blank or contains 2 instances of jp2launcher.exe which don't appear in task manager as running apps, processes or services)

Ends up with error code 1603 and a suggestion to refer to the Java Help Center website (which is an oxymoron).

Now can't uninstall java as it no longer appears in add/remove programs and even JavaRa won't fix it.

After spending 12 hours this week on this stupid java update issue I gave up and went back to using pytivo to offload my TiVo and now I really miss kmttg!
Fixed it with judicious manual pruning of directories, files and registry. Apparently things left over from previous failed installs/uninstalls.
