I copied the crypto utility off my TiVo an looked at it with strings, and found the following...

'-00DESTRUCT0' listed with come other switches that crypto can take...

and in the strings table.....

SELF-DESTRUCT will take place in 10 seconds...
'D' command rejected (0x%X)
'D' data rejected (0x%X)
Erasing...
EEPROM has been zapped, performing final flash erasure...
resetting micro

Is this really a self destruct function? Can TiVo nuke your box? Inquireing minds want to know.
