    My last reboot was the actual push of the new firmware on Wednesday at 4:56pm. Before that the 48 hour reboot was on Tuesday at 11:45am. So its been 2 days since reboot... Sooooooo.. Ill keep on watching.

    Ill look into firmware levels in diags and see if I can figure out what has a very recent date.

    I left the TA unpowered for 5 minutes today, and when I plugged it back in, it "just worked." If/when it dies again, I'll check those.

    My TA is apparently on older software still:

    FLASH: STA1.0.0_1520_LR_F.0701
    App(s): SARA v1.61.32.1

    And curiously, the TA CONFIG FILE is showing:

    TA CONFIG FILE
    Version: n/a

    I have a series 3 and haven't had the reboot issue with the TA. I haven't seen anyone else mention the issue of the Tivo not recognizing the TA after the Tivo reboots. Has no one had this problem? It's not as bad as the other problem, but it's going to be a problem for me if the power goes out at all.

    Last night my TivoHD rebooted twice while watching a recorded show. This is the first time my HD has ever rebooted itself. When it came back up the TA was "not connected" I unplugged the TA waited 30 sec. replugged. Tivo popped up the TA is now connected screen and all the channels were back.

    Question. On the Tuning Adaptor diagnostics screens which date would show when the TA last booted? I want to see if my TA has rebooted since I first connected it.

    Its in the 'Status Summary'... second page at the bottom in the CLOCKS section. Just go to TA Diags and hit select twice.

    CLOCKS
    Booted: Wed Mar 4 2009
    4:56:59 PM EST (0x.........)

    If it had rebooted you should have seen an unexpected 'Tuning Adapter Detected' (or attached or whatever the word it uses.) screen.

    Are you sure its the THD rebooting... (is it going back thru the into video with all the clips from CSI, Teletubbies etc)... or could it be the TA rebooting?? What you are describing fits the TA reboot issue... you see a Tuning Adapter Detected screen (TA led flashing 6 blink code) and 3-5 minutes later you see it happen again (TA led goes solid on).

    I'm in WNY/Amherst. I got a tuning adapter a couple days ago. Got it all hooked up. I'm having issues tuning SDV channels randomly. CNNHD, for example, works fine on minute but I can't tune to it the next. All SDV channels seem to be working at some time or another. I don't think its a signal strength problem. TWC says some other people have reported this issue and it is a problem with the Cisco firmware. Is anyone here having this problem?

    Since I disconnected my TA I don't know the answer to this. But what version of firmware does everyone have???? If you have been upgraded, can you please post the prior version and the new version numbers?

    BTW, I have a pair of S3's, and I get the "this channel unavailable" from time-to-time, but no "t/a detected" and haven't seemed to miss any recordings, though neither seems to be recording suggestions, but that's an oft-complained about temporary glitch.
