Is there any extra "stress" on the TiVo that occurs when you switch from "live" tv to a recorded show?
Is there "stress" induced when you try to transfer a recording from your TiVo to your computer?
My TiVo is having reboot issues occasionally even when left alone overnight. But it will almost certainly reboot if I try to transfer a recording or switch from Live TV to a recording.
As I noted in another post, I replaced the Power Supply and ran TiVo's SMART Hard Drive test (and it passed all the tests).
