    Hi,

    My Tivo Series III is constantly crashing. It reboots, but if we play a recorded show in a few minutes it crashes and starts booting again. This has happened 3 times in the last 2 hours. We do have an external 500 Gbyte drive we installed 2 months ago when we got the Series 3 box. Any thoughts?

    BTW, here is what we have done. Powered off everything. Reseated all cables and connectors. Powered up. Still crashes.

    The S3 might be different but when I've seen failing hard drives the symptoms were pausing and freezing but not rebooting.
