    :confused:I have Done a search and everything I cam across was from almost a year ago.

    My girlfriend and daughter were watching tv and she calls me over to ask my what happened. The HD TiVo had rebooted on it's own. When I first bought the HD I had read about people having this problem, fortunetly I didn't. I did experience the frozen screens which went away with the software updates. I have not chnaged anything on the TV/TiVo setup, and I don't think I have a new software or anything.

    Anyone seen this or have any ideas. I'm going to monitor the system and see what happens before I call TiVo and they tell me to reboot my system to fix. it.

    My series 3 just started spontaneously rebooting two days ago. We had a highly pixelated and stuttery copy of My Name is Earl and it rebooted twice at exactly the same point, so I thought it was just a corrupted show causing it to crash. But then it's crashed twice since on two different shows. Might conceivably be a bad hard drive (I have a WD 500GB DVR edition eSata). I just started researching the problem.

    My HD did it twice this morning. Once spontaneously and the other on a button press. I was just searching the forum to see if there is a known issue.
