    Yes. Sounds like your hard drive is having issues. Would clone your hard drive as soon as possible.

    :(

    Well, I've started transferring everything I can transfer to a secondary TiVo. This'll be two-for-two on failing Bolt+ devices (meanwhile, my Roamios and XLs are chugging away just fine).

    I’ve had one failure so far. The next time I’m going to set up a 3.5” hdd outside the TiVo and connected via sata cable. I’ve got a feeling that these oem 2.5” drives suck.
