    I was not home all day. Turned on tv. Started video of hbo show. No pre roll. A minute of video and I look up and see a giant tivo logo. Does anyone know why a box reboots for no reason? Box is plugged directly into wall outlet. 21.9.7v3. Funny , I been looking at 4 tuner Premieres. Maybe I am prescient. Then again it cant hurt to have a spare tivo!!

    Any Tivo will reboot when it encounters a problem, slowdown, etc. May be normal until it repeats many times.

    This is what happened to me today too (Romario pro TE4) except when it came back on the pre roll ads did start (still same software v3) and my guide ads returned.

    Mmm..maybe I overreacted. It was just wierd that the tv wasn't watched all day And after I sat down for 2 minutes, the box rebooted.

    Do you have CEC (Wake with TiVo) turned on? Maybe turn it off, if you're not really using it, as a test?

    Random reboots are just a fact of life with Roamios, I can go months without one and then see a couple within a week (as I did this week). Doing nothing different.

    Just have to live with it.
