Anyone else had a GSOD?

I was watching a programme I had transferred to the TiVo using Vuse and about 15 minutes in, it stuttered, paused then the screen went completely green and stopped responding to the remote. The front panel indicated that it was still recording but it was completely unresponsive.

Just wondered if anyone else had experienced this?

Rebooted and it seems ok now fingers crossed

Haven't had the problem myself, but was this possibly a reception issue? Does your TV by default go green when it's not receiving a signal?

No, as mentioned, this was during playback of a video file I had transferred to the device.

My reception, is excellent Laughing

Even the S1 Tivo's had this, very occasionally - once for me. The file system gets a bit confused, and just needs time to reorganise itself. Usually not fatal.




My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Yes, can be a filesystem glitch or worse.

Google the fault and you'll see that it is often (though not always!) a hard drive problem. I suggest you keep a close eye on your TiVo. If it happens again soon, get onto Telecom under warranty.

Chances are it's a one-off occurance.
