    I've replaced the power supply
    Tried two different hard drives...
    Tested HD with PowerMax utility - PASSED

    The Tivo works fine until you to to view "live TV" or playback a recorded show. Video shows...all looks good, then, within just a few seconds it reboots.

    This is very repeatable...

    Any ideas?

    Could be a defective video encoder or decoder on the motherboard. Not much you can do about that I'm afraid.

    Is there any history of these things suddenly becoming faulty?
    The unit was up and running fine for quite a while before this started.

    Also, any known "test" to (in the logs, etc.) confirm this theory?

    It's not a common failure. And I'm not aware of any specific tests you could perform to isolate the problem.
