As a lurker, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone here for their input and advice. I have a Series 3 that was having reboot issues and I ended up replacing the hard drive and a bulging capacitor. Bought several 2200uF 25V 105C caps from Mouser and got it installed on the first try. I know that I would not have noticed the bulge without the info in this post and others, and I am pretty sure I would not have attempted it myself without the same (no real soldering experience).

Thanks again.

Now you can start trolling Craigslist for other dead TiVos and use up the rest of those caps.:D
Either that or sell them with a small mark-up to help subsidize the shipping costs. ;)

I would definitely keep one as a back-up, but could send the the other two via usps to someone in need who was not in a huge rush. It seems that one is the one that fails fairly often.
