Roamio refuses to power on until rebooted

About once a week now, I hit the TiVo button to bring it out of standby (which I always place it in via the menus when I am done viewing) and nothing happens, the box seems dead to the world.

If I pull the power cord and reboot, everything is fine… until the next time.

I get no hangs or spontaneous reboots and don't seem to be missing any timer events.

Base Roamio, software is 20.5.9.RC15.

Any ideas?

Could it be a handshake issue with your tv? Maybe try another hdmi (assuming you use that) port or cable?

Is the light on the Tivo flashing to indicate it's receiving your remote's command?

No flashing - it acts as if it were unplugged or is hung.

Could be HDMI related I suppose.

Could the remote receiver inside the TiVo also gone to sleep ?

Try the Remote function using Kmttg, if that works than the above may be the problem

Possibly, but since the Roamio has no external buttons there's no alternate way to wake it up, so either way it needs a power cycle to bring it out of standby at that point.

Note I suspect this is software related in some way as this wasn't an issue until the past few months.

Or the remote function of the TiVo app. Not sure that the TiVo app or for that matter KMTTG communicates with activo in standby though.

I use KMTTG for my TiVo in standby all the time just before I get to watch some TV, works like a champ.
