I'm kind of in denial about this, as my Tivo HD XL is only 2-3 years old (got it right before the ATSC transition, whatever year that was). Tonight my mom was playing something on it, and it spontaneously rebooted. Only I think that was just one of at least several, as Vampire Diaries got split into three sections...presumably it rebooted three times during the show (it missed the end too). I did the Kickstart 57 and 58s...looks like I should try a 54 too. Both completed fairly quickly (minutes versus hours). Haven't had reason to use it since then. But...that sounds like the drive is going bad, right? Dang, I wish Tivos had two drive bays you could quickly access from the front, and ran in RAID-1. I've always been nervous about losing all my shows if the drive goes.... Luckily Amazon's Tivo prices are crazy low right now, although I don't know if I have to buy through Tivo in order to get half off lifetime service or not.
