    I had to restart my tivo because the guide was going to to run out information in 5 days because of the tuning adapter. After i restarted my tivo it would say powering up for 2 min then restart itself over and over.unpluggingng the tuning adapter usb cable seems to have fixed it.

    Well, apparently a bug, and/or possibly a hard drive starting to go bad. (Since unplugging the tuning adapter apparently fixed it, I'm leaning towards the former.)

    I hope its not the hard drive since i just put a 1 tb drive in it 6 months ago. But it has been working fine since i got it to boot up.

    The TA has nothing to do with guide data and re-starting the TiVo won't get you guide data, per se.
