Advertisements My TiVo Premiere Elite has recently started locking up and restarting constantly. It has been been like this for the last few days. It restarts many times in a row without fully booting up. I've had it since Early November and there have been a few times where it has been sluggish and has restarted but nothing like this. I called TiVo and they will RMA my unit and send another one out (which will be a repaired or renewed unit, btw). They seemed surprised that an Elite was failing like this. I am wondering how often this happened to people on the Elite? My unit is stock and has a tuning adapter and M-Card from TWC. Also, it did not yet get the new software that is being sent out to Premiere units. A few things that annoy me is that they require you to put another full MSRP $499 (plus tax) as a refundable deposit even though they are sending me only the TiVo and none of the cable, manuals, remote. Another option offered to me is that they will ship a replacement when they receive my unit which would mean I'd be without for 2 weeks or so. Also, I'll loose my setup and all my shows and season passes because they are going to immediately deactivate my current unit so I can't even download them to my computer with TiVo Desktop. Thanks TiVo! Another problem when RMAing my TiVo Elite is that my warranty period is tied to the original machine. So now I'll only have few weeks left on the 90 day warranty when I get the replacement unit. Wow, thanks again TiVo. Spending $500 has never felt soooo good. Hope the next unit is going to last longer than 10 weeks.
