Ugrade Success Story....well not exactly
OK, here's the situation. I have two Phillips 112 TiVo,s and a couple weeks ago I successfully performed the upgrade, TiVo now shows 52 hours.
Well over the next couple of days I notice a lot of partial recordings showing up. Then, twice while watching a prgram one night, TiVo restarts itself randomly. This continues over the next couple of days as I troubleshoot different things (power cord, new ATA66 cable, voodoo spells, etc.) Now I do have my A drive backed up, but this didn't seem like a drive issue, so as opposed to restoring my drive, on a dangerous hunch I simply swapped the drives in my two TiVo's to perform a little test.
Sure enough, the same TiVo BOX (now only a 14hr) continues to show the same problem, while my other TiVo, with the upgraded drives, has been working beautifully for almost 10 days now.
Anyone have any ideas or run into a similar problem? My guess is that something got fried while I had the box open, I always try to wear a static band, but you never know sometimes. Well, on the bright side, I have a perfectly functioning 52 hour TiVo and a semi-useful 14 hr TiVo to experiment on.
