    Got my latest daily email from my Tivo yesterday, and just noticed its been exactly a year since it was last rebooted when I added the 160Gb drives !
    How's that for reliabilty !! :)
    A year of perfect and fault free Tivo'ing :)

    I wonder how many Windows Media Centre boxes can say that !

    Excellent! Its fantastic to see consumer electronics behave like this - now it seems acceptable for Set top boxes, PVRs, PCs etc to run in an unreliable fashion.

    This would be one of my big fears about moving away from TiVo - thats why Im going to stay for the meantime......

    Holy cr@p! Nice one :)

    I've been lucky to get more than a couple of months out of mine before it re-boots itself for no apparent reason; though it's usually something to do with Tivoweb :(

    I think the longest I managed to go for is about half a year. These days I have to reboot almost every month to re-load the channel logos when certain database updates make them go away. :(
