    Last evening my Bolt+ did a restart while I was watching Yellowstone! 1/2 hour later it restarted again. Any ideas?

    Generally, a TiVo will reboot itself when it encounters some crash or error it can't find a way out of. For a Bolt+, the first three suspects are the hard drive, the power supply and the mainboard temp causing issues.
    - How old is the unit? Is the drive original?
    - Check the value labelled "MBT" or "ODT" (found in the System Info page - Settings & Messages > Help > Account & System Info > System Information, or Menu > Help > Account & System Info > System Information for TE4) and post it.
    - Do you have another 12v 3a tip-positive sleeve-negative power supply to test it with?

    Following this...my Bolt did a spontaneous reboot while I was watching something on Sunday morning.

    My ODT value is 51 for the Bolt that just rebooted on me last night along with 3 failed r105 error recordings earlier in the day, despite not being connected to the network at the time.

    My ODT value for my other two Bolts that haven't rebooted automatically in six months are 59 and 63.

    What does that number represent?

    Edit: I read it means On Die Temperature.

    Yep. It's the temp of the die of the Broadcom chip.

    59 C and 63 C are pretty hot, in my book. That's 138.2 and 145.4 F, respectively.
