Tivo randomly restarts

My Tivo will randomly reboot about once every two weeks or so while i am watching a recorded show. Any ideas why?

Get a #10 Torx driver, take off the lid, and carefully eyeball the power supply capacitors.

If you don't understand why I'm saying this, go read the wikipedia page on "capacitor plague".

I would say get ready to get a new HDisk as the 2 times mine started having this problem the HD died soon after.
