Both TiVo's froze and rebooted at same time

Today, just before 4:00p CDT, both of my TiVo Premieres froze and rebooted. They were both recording only one channel (Olympics on our local OTA NBC affiliate). On one of the Tivo's, we were just watching live TV on another channel. Without any warning, the picture froze, then a minute later, the TiVo rebooted.

I wanted to make sure that the other TiVo hadn't been interrupted and found that it had also rebooted about 5 minutes earlier than the one we were watching.

I didn't observe any sort of power issues at the time. They just rebooted with no warning.

Any ideas?

I have no ideas except to say that my Premiere rebooted at about the same time. ~1:45 MST (Arizona) time, equivalent to 3:45 CDT. Both tuners were recording big olympic blocks, one on the OTA nbc affillate, and the other on the analog cable nbc sports channel.

No warning. No explanation. Weird coincidence.

NBC added three Olympics channels to several cable lineups sometime this past week. When that happened on my system, it caused five of my NBC related HD channels to no longer function on two of my three cablecards. Re-pairing took care of that but the five affected channels are now copy protected (CCI byte=0x02) while the new channels are not. Bottom line is that anything related to Olympics coverage and strange Tivo behavior is possible.
