    For a few days I noticed my TiVo's main menu had a few less items that it should have had. It was missing "Inside Tivo" and "Channel Highlights". However everything was working fine, I had seen the same a few weeks ago too.

    Now the menus are back to normal. But previously I had tivoweb installed and running, now its completely gone. In fact logging in via telnet I see the entire /var/bla tree (was it a partition, I cant remember?) is not there. 'System Information" says the uptime is 14 days and more.

    TiVo: {/var/tmp} % df
    Filesystem 1024-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on
    /dev/hda4 126911 15892 104466 13% /
    /dev/hda9 126911 14949 105409 12% /var

    Ideas as to what has happened, and what I should do now.
