    Tonight I changed my DTV adapter. I was having problems where it seemed that a bunch of channels I received just fine suddenly no longer come in well. I checked the antenna and decided to change my DTV adapter and see if that helped.

    The really weird thing is that now about 4 to 5 seconds after you start to watch live tv, the tivo just reboots. This has never happened before and this ONLY started after I changed the digital tv adapter to an Apex model.

    Is it remotely possible that the DTV adapter can cause this issue?

    I can watch existing recordings just fine with no reboot whatsoever. Only happens when I watch live tv.

    I also just tried a third DTV adapter and that didn't solve the problem, same issue. Weird thing is that if I go to the channel changing section and configure the DTV adapter and just wait and not click continue testing, it will watch live tv for as long as I leave it.

    You're talking about a "coupon box", right?

    Are you using this TiVo for just over the air? No cable or satellite?

    What model S2 TiVo? (starts with TCD)
