...well, it might be the hard drive, but I am hoping it isn't and that would be one hell of a coincidence (ran a S.M.A.R.T. test, it passed)...

I have a Roamio standard with lifetime. I used the bless and expand method to at a 5TB drive. The Roamio is connected via Ethernet to my home network, I have a lifetime TiVo Mini connected via MoCA.

It has run flawlessly for about a year.

I swapped out my DSL for DOCSIS 3 using an Arris SB6183. I put a splitter on the cable that runs to the Roamio and connected the Arris to one leg, and the Roamio to the other.

Now, whenever I turn off the TV connected to the Roamio, it reboots.

Steps I have taken to try to fix it:

  • Switched around ports on the splitter
  • Swapped the Arris and TiVo from 7Db and 3.5Db ports
  • Added a MoCA filter coming into the house
  • Switch MoCA settings from DHCP to Static
  • Turning off a set channel for MoCA, setting it to "Auto"
  • Turning off MoCA encryption
  • Fixing the grounding wire on my cable MPOE (long story)
  • Switched HDMI inputs on TV / Replaced HDMI Cable

My gut says it is some kind of ground potential difference that kicks in when I turn the TV off. The TV, Roamio, and cable modem are plugged into the same power strip so that should have a common ground. I wonder also if the ground on the cable shielding is causing this? Perhaps the Arris changed how ground works and TiVo doesn't like it.

Anything else I should try? I really, really don't want to swap the hard drive.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Looks like HDMI-CEC might have been it, and I think I figured out the timing. I started using my Nexus Player again with the new internet to get full Google Cast (since TiVo's cast support is very limited). Since Nexus Player makes use of HDMI-CEC, I guess it triggered the bug.

I'm kicking myself because I saw the thread on that, but it said HDMI-CC. As a long time TiVo user, I vaguely heard of HDMI control, but didn't know what it was called. I thought... "Okay, I'll turn off closed captioning, don't see how that will make a difference, but whatever." Dumb.

TiVo should add HDMI-CEC and full Google Cast support to the list of things...they will probably never get added now that they have been bought out.

:(
