3 reboots in a half hour... just scheduled UVerse installation. A week of bad service and pitiful customer service (if you can call being lied to and have your arm twisted to buy new equipment to fix the problem service) and 12 years with DTV is over.

It seems Directv believes they are infallible, I bet they are still trying to blame Tivo for all this, even though the Tivo is working fine whenever disconnected from the satellite signal for playback of prerecorded shows.

Tivo should tell them you broke it Directv, now you fix it.

If I spend any money out of this it will be on a new Tivo I can use for OTA or with another provider. My directv tivos are the sole reason I am even still with directv after 14 years.

I still have my series 1 HDR-312 (non directv) tivo up and running connected to an OTA tuner for recording locals. It's always there and happy to help out during bad weather or whenever directv drops the ball. Brand new coin battery, power supply, and hd. working like day one when I brought it home from Sears for hundreds of dollars.

7:28pm PST - this was our 4th today.

Just called the 1-800-531-5000 number and spoke with a csr - they said it's a known issue, engineering are working on it, and if there's a fix today it will come in a download tonight. She didn't have any other details, so it didn't sound that certain that there woud be a fix today. If it's still happening tomorrow then I'll call back and have a moan...

Uverse isn't available here. So after 3 reboots in 30 minutes (leaving me with about 9 minutes of service in 30 minutes) I'm choosing between Comcast and Dish. What should I go with.

Has anyone tried an actual full system reset? I'd give up all my recorded content, wish lists etc if it would make any difference. Otherwise I'm ready to move on to another provider.

If you like your Tivo, go with Comcast and get an eBay Tivo. If you're indifferent to Tivo, go with Dish.

Or, if you're indifferent to Tivo and don't mind rewarding DirecTV for giving you bad service, go with their new DVR.

If directv abandons me and my unit. I will leave directv, even after 18 years. Ive noticed the trend over the years of the push to get provided recievers from them. The thing that really attracked me in the first place was all they did was provide service. the unit and installation was your puppy to deal with. Directv has over the years turned into the cable co. Boooo.

And again another reboot before I can finish typing this 11:00pm eastern

When I dId the comparison, Dish was cheaper, had better equipment and Comcast just rubbed me the wrong way with their confusing order system.

10:58PM. What a surprise.

I'm done. Pulling the plug until they fix this. Or I just leave for Uverse, Comcast, Dish or just quit paying for TV.

8:00 p.m. in California, had the television off, saw a post above of "7:58 reboot in California," turned the television on and got: "Almost there. Just a few minutes more..."

Full reset does no good. I actually replace my HD with a brand new weaknees drive before I found this forum, thus completely started from scratch - NO DICE.

This is interesting, because earlier it was thought to be impacting everything but the new HD Directv Tivo boxes.

DTV wont give current customers theIr newest receiver (genie). This is reserved for new customers.

And another reboot, seven minutes after the last one. Maybe my Tivo will just go into continuous reboot mode.

Yes, because 300 people out of 3 million who haven't updated to new hardware in 10 years will really affect the stock price. </sarcasm>
