    My Roamio Plus is rebooting frequently, seemingly when we go to playback various shows.
    It may be in the middle of recording other shows fine, go to playback either on main box or a mini just now, boom it goes away. Comes back, seems fine.

    I ran a kickstart 54 and initial SMART tests ran fine, I did not have time to run the final full tests. The drive is 3TB only 6mos old anyway (WD av-gp).

    I am not tuning any h.264 channels or anything wierd.
    I have moved it downstairs to get better signal, swapping it with my HD-S3,
    since I had a bad cable upstairs which was causing V52/53 tuning errors (RS correct/uncorrect), both on roamio and S3...
    never had problems on this cable downstairs..
    any ideas?

    The first thing I tried was the hard drive. That seemed to solve the problem and then the Tivo started rebooting again. So I replaced the power supply. I have not had a reboot in over 2 weeks now. Wish I had done that first as it was the cheaper of the 2 options.
