    I'm having the same problem - Dec 10, 2019 - rebooting when doing signal strength test. Also noticing a 10 second lag time between selection of a recording to watch and having it start, my Premiere XL had a faster response time.

    ...and it's January 4, 2020, and the problem still exists.

    I have the exact same issue! Any time you run a signal test, if you change the channel, it crashes and the Tivo reboots.

    Maybe there will be an update in time for the spring thaw.

    I thought my Drive was going. Same behavior, as replicated itself twice on Roamio OTA, on tuning screen. Channel up does it every time. What about channel down? What a crapping bug to have been going so long and unfixed with Hydra and I am not here to ***** about Hydra. I actually dont mind it except for the drab color tone. Was just adjusting the antenna with minor adjustments. and poof rebooted!

    Perhaps this issue is unrelated, but odd that it happens at all?

    "AFTER" a successful (?) "New Channel Scan" 2 of my Roamios 'lock up'? Even though the report is, "Scan 100% Done" (or something like that), the Scan never exits and all attempts to 'quit' warn, "If you quit now all of your new channels will be lost"?

    Has your software version always ended in -1A12? Usually it ends with the same three numbers of your TSN, like the -846. It may not mean anything, but I've never seen it before. The first 846 is sometimes USA or USC.

    Howdy, Joe... I do apologize!

    "20.7.4b.RC3-846-6-846" is the correct Version info and this is Roamio #4 for me ~ the 'newest' I have.

    (I am fairly sure it's running "HYDRA" ~ and I think HYDRA is NOT allowing a upgrade to a "4TB Purple"... it's allowing just 284 HD Hours? It was a factory fresh drive a few days ago. SO disappointing because I thought the 'new' Purple 4TB would just 'plug n' play'? While it DID 'setup', 284 Hours is far from what I expected!) But I don't mean to hijack the Thread.

    Thank you, Joe for telling me about my error!

    My one basic Roamio, TE3, WD red, has 477 hour capacity. I have three others, one on TE4. I installed the drive in October 2017 and have yet to fill it up (physically).

    Yes! 477 HD recording hours is very impressive... SPACE! Can you please tell me the size of your 'Red'?

    I like to capture a array of programming... from astronomy to zoology and I thought new (read larger) drives would be recognized and setup to capacity? While I knew there would be some setup time and I didn't expect a sudden transformation, I had the understanding that new drives could be installed with ease, unlike the older TiVo brothers...

    I'm not quite...

    3TB is large enough for me. You can go larger, but it requires some PC based software and access to the drive from the PC. I'm sure it's explained here: TiVo Upgrade Center

    You obviously aren't trying. ;)

    When I installed a 3TB drive into my 500BG Bolt box, I was amazed at having 6x (6x--just think of that!) the capacity. I thought that I would only fill a portion of that, and only did, initially. And now I'm north of 90% full and, for the life of me, I don't recall selecting much to record. Of course, there is no way that I'm ever going to watch all that stuff (my brain would become putty), but it just feels "wrong" to delete the vast majority of it. :confused:

    One 1TB Roamio records late night (and everything else) on NBC, CBS, and Comedy Central. That 3TB unit records all else including Jimmy Kimmel Live! which since it's ABC is small. I kill everything after watching except late night. I keep late night unless it's missing SM. So that 3TB drive only has an hour of ABC (344 programs) in it. The 1TB has only about 180 programs using the same criteria. It takes about a month to fill the 1TB which then makes me kill the whole month. I do this to avoid always using the same area of the drives. I tell myself its almost like defragging. I have too much free time.

    I bought a new antenna for my ROTA and did a signal test and sure enough, the system rebooted . So this is an ongoing issue?

    ROTA = Roamio OTA maybe?
