TiVo stops dead ...
My TiVo has started hanging, the only option being to pull the plug. It is totally inconsistent, in that I may be watching a recording, a live program, may be in the menus, usually not using the remote at the time. There is absolutely nothing odd or common in the logs at the point of failure. They just stop dead. Temperature is normal, both to me and the TiVo (42C). No SMART errors detected. If watching a program, the picture just stops dead or goes black.
Have just removed irblast, endpad and autospace to see if that makes a difference. Only TiVoWeb left to remove. It first broke when temporarily using the latest tserver_mfs7 over my AirNet. However, I can't see how this has broken the TiVo since it has not been loaded since.
Just hung within a minute of being rebooted, so those hacks weren't to blame.
Will pull drives and test them, but this doesn't appear to be the normal indication of drive failure.
For gold text on leather in TiVoWeb, try the redbook, bluebook, greenbook and blackbook themes, now updated with button menus
