View Full Version : DirecTiVo reboots on it's own

01-10-2003, 05:23 PM
My Phillips DSR6000 has begun rebooting itself the last few days. When I get home from work I see the TiVo animation menu when I hit TiVo and my 30 second skip and banner preferences have gone back to default. I thought my house might have lost power temporarily, but 3 days in a row is too coincidental.

Any thoughts?

Could be power supply problem, or bad hard drive, corrupt software of failing CPU or memory. Or if you have blocked updates with UPDATES=false (or whatever it is) the system will reboot daily and then abort the install each time.

This is what the log files in /var/log are for. They should contain the time and reasons for the reboots. If you have NULLed you log files, then delete them and let them accumalte data again.

How would I go about opening and reading those log files?
