    Last night our Bolt was running fine. This morning I found it in some sort of loop where it would flash the Tivo logo for a couple hundred mS every ten seconds or so. Other than that, the screen was black, there was no response to the remote, the red record LED was on continuously and the ethernet connection was dead (the light was off on the router).

    I power cycled it and it booted back up and seems to be running normally.

    Anyone else?

    I had this happen to a Mini once. No idea why it failed.

    I had a Roamio do that once as well, pretty sure it tried to update the firmware in the night, but failed, I'm guessing pulling the plug reverted back to the old software, it tried again and the update worked.
