Actually that is the only way to shut down tivo. I know for anyone who has used a computer that sounds ridiculous, but supposedly the tivo disk/file format is more foregiving of this type of interruption.

If you are super cautious, you could put it in stand-by first and make sure it is not recording anything.

But what do you do if your PC freezes up?
Mine has always restarted from a freeze by holding down the power on/off button for 10-15 seconds. never had to pull the plug (many freezes).

That was in response to what to do when your PC freezes up. If everyone keeps talking about the Tivo secret door it ain't going to remain a secret.

That's what I do, too, but how is that different than pulling the plug? Does the pc have some sort of process it goes thru to protect the file integrity? I guess I don't understand how that really differs from pulling the plug. I pass up no opportunity to learn, however.
Big difference. I don't have to crawl on my hands and knees under the desk looking for the right plug in the dark. :)
