    This may have been beat to death, but despite searching and reading for about 45 minutes, I cannot find a similar post.

    I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong. :)

    Up until mid July 2007, I had NEVER had any reboot problems.
    DSR6000 Series 1
    hacked, larger drives, cache card, updates over the internet (no phone connected)

    Starting mid July, I now get an immediate reboot whenever I:

    Try to manage season passes
    Add a season pass when selecting a show from the Guide

    I have 4 DSR6000s all hacked and the others are working fine - just this one!

    Any ideas?

    You have a damaged SP or it's referencing a damaged object. I had a S1 do the same sort of thing -- it was crashing shortly after startup, at the first scheduler run, as soon as it walked the NPL... Channel 28 had been deleted in one of TMS's major channel f*ups years ago (the idiots didn't know the difference between a digital channel and an analog channel.) As soon as the "source" is referenced for anything recorded from the now gone channel, *poof*. (The logs clearly showed the object causing the issue. I was not happy having to destroy 3 seasons of [censored].)

    So your options are a) "Don't do that." :) b) "Clear program information & to fo list" and if that doesn't help... Nuke it: Clear & Delete Everything. (buy a UPS, it might take a day. or more.)

    (Or find a nearby tivo hacker to get into the thing, look at the tverr log, find the offending object(s) and remove them.)

    [EDIT: Isn't there a kickstart code for forcing an mfsfix? Maybe that would help. It's certainly faster than a C&DE.]
