    My config - 2 Series 2 TIVO DVR's one with a upgradedHD 2010 the other has a standard HD.

    Both continue to do random reboots.

    Latest was at 6:48 PM EST - the unit with the upgraded HD
    Approx. 7:02 PM EST the other unit rebooted
    Called Directv CS they claim they have noknowledge of this issue.

    And then reboot again at 1:58 pm on the same receiver only 3 minutes later then predicted by pattern.
    Yesterday afternoon reboot was around 2:25 pm so there seems to be this pattern that moves 30 minutes earlier each day.

    Both our series 2 Samsung's have been rebooting at least twice a day between 8:30am-9:00am and between 3:00-4:00pm for a week... my son thinks it's rebooting more often than that.

    Every time our units reboot the screen says something about not being able to retrieve the latest guide info but during the normal updates between 2:30-3:30 in the morning they always say "Successful".

    Until I found this message thread, I thought it was something wrong with my dish and/or coax connections

    Two HR10-250 receivers and one R10 are all restarting... started about a week ago

    Really irritating... making me think about updating to HD equipment

    So lets review, in the last 19hrs on a single receiver that I checked;

    3:25am
    12:55pm
    1:55pm
    5:55pm
    8:25pm
    10:25pm
    1:25am

    All my other receivers are rebooting too just don't keep track on those other then hearing about it.

    Same problem here

    My 1st HR10-250 would forget that it had a valid account AND it would restart
    My 2nd HR10-250 (from closet reserve) never lost the account, but it DID restart
    My R10 (final closet reserve) never lost the account, but it DOES restart

    I was actually looking for information on the THR22 DTivo, when I found this message thread about "all over" restarts with SD equipment

    Since my two HR23 receivers have not had any problems, I am now concluding that the problem is not with my equipment... but is a problem with a malformed data stream from DTV

    If DTV is not able, or willing, to fix the current problem, I may just have to find out if they have a "special" to replace my HR10-250 with an HD DVR... when I upgraded to HD service almost 3 years ago, I got new dish and two HR23 boxes at no cost because DTV had a special going on... I did, of course, have to commit to the usual 2 years of service, but since I've been a customer since 1995 and have NO interest in leaving DTV, another 2 years was a "no price" deal for me to get HD service

    Anyway, I no longer think the problem is at my end, due to this discussion

    I just talked to "Terri" in tech support... she checked for me, and said the "engineers know about the problem, and are working on a fix"

    She said, from what she read, that a software update was going to be the fix

    With Thanksgiving coming up I don't think we will be seeing anything this week, Today I have had like 8 reboots so far on each box about double the amount just 2 days ago.

    Wow, ours has been doing this as well lately. I just saw this thread.

    We are getting pixalation on our s4080r and decided maybe it is time to go HD and reset prices. Interesting to see this is a bigger issue than our old 6 year old box, which until lately has been perfect.

    I have to agree the reboots are getting far worse I started with maybe 2 a day on each box but now several times a day. I had programs set to record Friday evening 7-10 and it rebooted on all three programs so now it's starting to get irritating.

    I wonder if D* will have this fixed before CES?

    Any opinions on whether we should disconnect the receivers until a fix is introduced or not? I believe some have said the rebooting is not hard on the hard disk because it does not spin down the drive.

    I've left mine connected.

    I could handle it with 4-5 reboots a day, but the reboots have intensified dramatically.

    D* needs a better deal than they currently have for switching receivers. I don't want to pay for a HDTivo, and I don't want one of their SD DVRs.

    The protection plan doesn't help unless you are willing to accept non-Tivo dvr.

    Any guess on how many subscribers are effected?

    Perhaps there is a pending software download/upgrade that is bad. A poster stated that a box plugged in without the satellite (potentially carrying a software upgrade), doesn't reboot. If the box thinks it needs to upgrade, but it isn't ever successful, it would keep trying and failing whenever the upgrade is downloaded.
