Just made a tivo, using TiVoMad /w 2 60GB Western Digital drives and tivo keeps freezing, also the temperature is mad hot, I don't really know what it is, because it keeps freezing after few minutes. I opened the cover and still freezing.

Freezing as of not working and not cold. ::))))

Any suggestions guys? I made many upgrades with just extra 60 GB Western Digital without any problems..

Do you have a serial connection to another machine? If you did, it might help you figure out what it's doing when it dies..

Maybe (gasp) just leave it off until the night time when it gets cooler and see if it still freezes then.. If it behaves until it gets warm again in the daytime, you might be right about the heat...

I'll bet the problem is one of the drives. Pretty classic symptoms.

Not surprising from Western Digital drives. The margin of tolerences from WD production lines are atrocious...........

I already had a deffective WD drive, I got a good replacement, now I'm running the WD utility and so far for both drives under quick test it showed me no errors, now running extended test.
