Ok, this is getting very old. As far as I can remember this all started with 3.1.0c. When I finally got the update I had to redo most of my hacks all the way from killinitrd. Long story short my DSR6000 has been randomly rebooting, and as far as I can tell it seems to be tied to my hacking. Also I recently hacked my parents DSR6000, and now theirs also is suffering. Until I hack their tivo the only upgrade was a larger hard drive. Their tivo was clean and trouble free all the way through 3.1.0c2. This hacking has been planned since before 3.1.0c released but I simply haven't had the time to sit down and do it.

Anyway back to the short story. Their hacking went very easily and seemed to be trouble free. So after everything was done I made a backup of theirs and restored it to my tivo. After a few minor fixes after the restore (error #51, blocking of modem test) my tivo was back up and running. It was cleaner and faster than ever before.

Now both of the tivos and randomly rebooting. I have been unable to find any commonality to the timing of the reboots. Sometimes it's recording one show, sometimes two, or none. Sometimes it's been sitting playing the live buffer without interaction. Sometimes I'm watching a recorded show.

The crash and reboot itself though is always the same, even on both tivos.
Here is an excerpt from my tverr log.

Even stranger is that both tivos often reboot at nearly the same time. This last one actually has the exact same timecode in the error log.

Here is what I've done in the way of hacks.

telnet
tivoftpd
serial bash
vserver
tivowebplus
mfs_ftp
tivoapp: noscrable
tivoapp: nowplaying sort
tivoapp: disable yellow star promos
tivoapp: 30 second skip
tivoapp: enable backdoors

Only since version 3.1.0c have I used the tivoapp hacks. And only since then have these reboots happened. Before then I was using the same version of all the other hacks without trouble. I've even restored a backup of tivoapp on my tivo and only done the noscramble and sort hacks as I don't take advantage of the others, and still it reboots.

Anyone have any ideas? If you need any more info let me know and I'll post it.
