    My Roamio has been flawless since I first bought it ~1yr ago (I expanded the hard drive on day-one).

    Tonite it re-booted unexpectedly. After its normal start-up sequence, I got to the TiVo intro video, it played for ~15 seconds and then re-booted again. This process has repeated 5 times.

    On one attempt, I pressed the TiVo button to bypass the intro, the TiVo went to the Live programming and played for a minute or two, then rebooted.

    Any suggestions to troubleshoot?

    I'm getting the same thing just now. I'm not sure what the problem is. I have two Roamio Pros and only one is doing this at the moment.

    Right now the problem machine has boot looped 5 or 6 times now.

    Same here with my Roamio Pro. Maybe someone should tweet Margret about it.

    This just started for me as well, I was watching an older saved show when it stopped responding to the remote, now it just keeps rebooting after about a minute. :(

    Just to add another data point... Got home a few minutes ago, and same issue here on a Roamio+. No modifications on my box, and it has the same drive since I bought it.

    Just disconnected ethernet and that stopped the boot looping for me.

    2nd Roamio Pro still working fine though.

    Yanked Ethernet here. Reboots have stopped, but this is only a temporary fix ;)

    This just started for me to. Was watching a recording and it rebooted. Now it reboots every few minutes. I think I'm going on number 6 right now.

    Same issue here. Pulled the Cat5. Pissed because it's 8:15 and I'm missing shows being taped!

    Just to add to the chorus, two Roamios, one rebooting over and over, the other fine. Unplugged network cable to get it to stop.

    My problem with disconnecting network cable is that my 3 minis are now useless unless I want to go through trying to connect through MoCA

    Same here. Bunch of reboots in a row, looks like OK after removing ethernet cord.

    Same problem. I disconnected it from the Internet and for the moment it appears to be working.
