    Why does my HR10-250 keep re-booting on its own while we are watching and/or recording programmming? Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening?

    Most likely bad hard drive. New hard drive or new unit, depending on your skill level and time available.

    How old is your HR10-250? If it's still covered by its one year warranty, have it replaced.

    But first check a couple of things ....

    * Be sure it's not overheating. Check its internal temperature under "Messages & Setup" -> "System Information". If it's over 50-degC, it might be overheating.

    * Verify that your AC power isn't "glitching". A good quality 350VA UPS will isolate your Tivo from AC power problems and even power your Tivo for nearly an hour during a total blackout.

    Mine was rebooting on its own and I did the master reboot and cleaned everything out. It seems to be better now. You will have to re-enter your season passes and any programs stored will go away.
