    Last night I just happened to glance up at the new Elite TiVo and saw all 4 red record lights on for 1 - 2 seconds - I had no recordings scheduled. I had been watching my cable box - I then turned to the TiVo input and discovered that all 4 tuners were set to the same channel. I had noticed the same channel happening the other day - I usually will set up 4 channels (not record) to watch news / shows for a few hours - I do this with my dual tuner S3 and Comcast cable box - usually works great. In general I like the new Elite - perhaps bad unit or bug in software - any one else observe this?

    Reads like you caught the box right after a reboot, as I believe you'll see all tuner lights on for a few seconds

    Yes. All four tuners will be on the same channel after a reboot.

    FYI, there are other reasons that all tuners can end up on the same channel that don't include a reboot (having suggestion recording on can do this when the channels change back to the "original" channel), but the fact that all the lights blinked means it was a reboot.
