    This happens while I’m recording and it splits up and misses some of the tv shows. I was reading on another thread about the power supplies possibly being a problem. Does anyone know what the issue is?

    Also, I’ve had another Bolt do this and I paid for a replacement from Tivo, only for it to happen on the replacement.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is there an instruction thread on how to replace the power supply for Bolt and where and what power supply to buy on weaknees or some other website?

    no if the ac adapter didn't work have you tried different power outlets in the home?

    Good idea. Additionally, is the TiVo plugged into a UPS? Maybe you are getting power brownouts. Not enough to affect other devices, but maybe enough to reboot the TiVo.
