HDTivo HD10-250 rebooting and locking up after rev d
Posted 17 October 2004 - 06:51 AM
The problem is that the unit will randomly reboot and then lock up on startup, but at very long intervals. Yesterday I had it running from 9am until 10pm. I turned my TV off and went to bed. At 6:30am this morning I turned it on and everything was fine, so I turned it off. At 7:30am I turned the TV back on and it was locked up! (Could the TV be causing this?)
On the DVI input I end up with gray snow, very similar to analog static. On the component input the unit is frozen on the starting up message.
The only way to get it out of being frozen is to unplug it and plug it back in. As I said, this is my THIRD unit doing this. The first unit I had worked fine, until the DAY it downloaded rev D.

Interesting problem. Have you tried moving the receiver to another location? Maybe just a few feet from where it is now? If this is your third unit, it might be related to your installation. Is your system properly grounded?
I would suggest checking everything (power, cables, etc.).
