Latest S03 error for S3 TiVos

650 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Teeps
My Series 3 TiVo configured for OTA+Cable (but no tuning adapter) missed a few recordings (two days ago), and I noticed it hadn't done a successful d/l in about a week, but there was still accurate guide data, and "record history" didn't show any reason for the programs not to record.

So I repeated "Connect to TiVo" several times and fortunately, got a successful guide download! Problem is, it got another S03 error today (which normally I wouldn't care), and again, no upcoming "season pass" recordings are in the ToDo list - only manual recordings and named-show recordings I re-entered manually. I'm not sure if the other scheduled recordings were removed when the S03 error occurred (new anti-feature?) or if the ToDo list never re-populated, as the failed download occurred only a few hours after the successful one.

I could try "Clear Program info & ToDo list" but then I'd have nothing instead of 2 weeks of guide! Are other users experiencing this, and do you have any suggestions?

yes and no.
My S3 648250 still gets S03 error from time to time but it has a cable card and tuning adapter.
When the t/a is left disconnected (usb) for a few hours GC completes, then the service connection completes.
S03 is gone and guide data is current.

Last week it had an S03 error and the last GC completion was 2 days old.
Disconnected the t/a and by the next morning S03 was gone and guide data updated.
But a day later I checked sys info. Service connection failed: S03 error.
The weird thing is GC completion was up to date.
I forced a connection, checked a while later to see it had failed again.
Disconnected the t/a and as always a few hours later all was up to date.
