    Three times the dam machine has done this and it is a PAIN.

    I am watching playback recordings then it powers up.

    Is this normal?

    While I am watching a recording the recording is interupted and a message appears on screen saying that TIVO is powering up. I then have to wait a few mins till it stops and goes through the TIVO introduction before getting back to the menu where I have to select the playback of the recording to start again.

    Nope that is NOT normal. N ever, ever seen that.

    Sounds like the power supply is being interrupted and its rebooting.

    Could it be overheating?

    have you checked the TiVo community?

    I HAD this problem to. The advice I was given at the Tivo Community was as follows. Leave your Digibox on.

    Apparrently, it does no harm to leave your satellite receiver on IE on the last channnel you were viewing. If it's off the Tivo box detects the fact that theres no source material to buffer and it reboots itself to see if it can locate a signal.

    I no longer have this problem.
