Hope not... it's going through a battery backed UPS.
Actually I thought about that too but there was no lightning strike at the time, just rain. (There had been several hours earlier that caused several "spikes" in my lighting but the TiVo kept running then.)
The box is obviously old (I've replaced the power supply and have gone through several hard drives) so I was wondering if there was a known aging decoder issue or something.
