    There are new reports of this problem reappearing over on TivoCommunity.

    Did DTV reinstate the new program guide data?

    Oops - spoke too soon. The problem is now requiring a manual reboot every couple of days. It's back the way it was.

    If this happened where I worked, somebody would've been fired by now. Where's the responsibility for irking the Clients?

    I haven't had the reboot problem with any of mine (SD or HD) for 3-4 weeks. Whenever they turned off the change they made to the SAT stream.

    Is your unit hacked so you could take a look at the log files?

    Nope - not hacked...

    It's not rebooting itself - I'm forcing a reboot because I'm getting the "someone modified the season pass" thing again.

    Everything is fine about an hour after the reboot.

    Have you tried a reset to clear Program Information and To Do list? It could be some bad data got into your guide/TDL/SPs and it needs a clear to reload the guide data and recreate the TDL.

    Wolf - once I reboot, things are fine - for a while.

    It's actually the exact same behavior we saw a few weeks ago. My guess is that DirecTV is tweaking the guide data again.

    I'm not seeing any of that. I don't frequent TCF, is there talk over there of renewed problems?

    Yep.

    We have 2 HR10-250's and both are now re-experiencing the "someone modified the season pass" bug.
