    I have a 7+ year old RCA DVR 80 wich I love. Lately it is doing the random reboot thing. Dosn't seem to be as frequent as the last time lots of folks were having this issue. The unit is getting slower to display choices made from the remote. I fear it's a function of it's age and a component is slowly failing.
    Is anyone else having the re boot issue?

    I am impatiently waiting for the new Tivo unit. I'm in northern VT so when I can get it is unknown at this time.

    The THR22 is now available from D*. It's listed at $199, but some are reporting getting it for $99 or even free.

    We have 3 older tivo units and they all reboot randoming at the same time so it is still not a unit issue but something DTV is doing on their end to cause the issue.

    I called DTV 2 weeks ago to inquire and they told me they had no info on the unit and could not even talk about it unitl 2/9.
