Yes!In the last 24 hours or so -- I think consistent with the timing of this latest update -- almost every time I go to play ANY recording on my TiVo, it goes to a black screen for a few seconds, then does a HARD reboot. (Not a reboot of the UI, the whole machine restarts.)
It always comes back fine, but anything I try to play, the same thing happens.
Out of six attempts, I did get it to work once. I tried connecting to the service and looking around in the settings for a while, then was suddenly able to play back two programs. I went to start a third -- back to the reboots. Tried again 15 hours later...every try results in a reboot.
The obvious first thought is that it's a hard drive failure, but I am able to stream any of these programs to an iPad with no problem at all. So it's certainly not a problem with the recordings.
I know my power supply is going, because the machine usually takes a dozen or so attempts to restart if I unplug it (which is why it's been on a UPS for the last few months). But I have a hard time imagining that the simple act of initiating playback of a recording would cause some kind of burst in power requirements that would cause a restart, especially if it streams fine.
So based on that, I am hoping this is a software bug related to the latest update. Frustratingly, there is no way (still...after hoping this would change in the last 20 years) to get any kind of debug or diagnostic information about what is causing the reboot, which brings me here. Has anyone else been experiencing this? Or is it time to call this device totally shot?
UPDATE: I thought to try something else. I am able to play back videos streamed from another TiVo on my network. So playback by itself does not appear to be the issue. Then again, neither is playback of specific programs if I stream them (and given the one time it worked, it had failed on that same program in earlier attempts).
I'm having the same problem today with my Bolt OTA. Every time I try to watch a recorded program it results in system shutdown and reboot. I can watch live OTA or a streaming program without issue. During the last week or so I have had a couple of shutdown reboot cycles but not consistently like today.
Does anybody have any solutions, this is very annoying.
