First funny in nearly two years of ownership.

Last night went to add to my Season passes.

Surprised to find many items in the Find Programs menu gone !

And the Sesaon Passes were corrupted - all episodes in the Passes were noted Will not be recorded.

Surprised

WTF ???

A power-off restart restored the menu but the Seson Passes were still fubar.

Frown

Maybe it was a power spike that corrupted things. I suspect that you will have to do a factory default before you can report it as a fault to TiVo..

If the instructions are correct and it looks like its not the hardest thing in the world to replace?

That's for a Series 1 TiVo.

Imaging a TiVoHD is slightly different. You use WinMFS in Windows to copy a TiVoHD HDD, rather than a linux-based boot CD (with custom modded image) for the Series 1 TiVo.
