Anyone else have a problem with the RCA connectors falling off their Tivo?

    I have had this problem with two separate Series 2 Tivos.
    When taking the connection cable out, the outer part of the RCA connector that is supposed to be attached to the Tivo is coming off with the cable. It looks like the lugs for this piece have not even been soldered.

    I was wondering if anyone else had this experience?

    Ditto. Over the weekend moving some electronics around because of a new set in the BR, noticed a 'spare' unit was missing the outer connector. Looked a my cable and ther it was just sitting there.

    Granted my cable had a tighter than usual grip, but I should not have been able to pull off the connector when I detached the cable.

    Planning on 'yard saleing' this box anyway, but it would have really bothered me if it were a subscribed box.

    Perhaps Tivo are using Cheaper Cables and Connectors now?
