    I just got this error message on my TiVo Bolt.

    "There is a serious problem with the information on the TiVo box's hard drive, and it can't be fixed. The hard drive must be reformatted. All recordings and most settings will be cleared."

    I'm hoping this isn't real so haven't begun the reformatting process. Anyone have any ideas on if it's real or if I can salvage my recordings?

    Thanks

    You might have success with a Cloning Dock or a KS57 or KS58.

    Maybe...

    Pulled the cord on the TiVo and it restarted and worked. Phew! Seems like I need to be backing things up just in case.

    Dang good time to backup your Season Passes, Channel List and even Thumbs Rating.

    KMTTG can do that for you.
