Yup, it's terminal, unfortunately.

Give them a ring to get a replacement sorted.

Re: TiVo box keeps restarting

Hello emma,
This should not be happening
Has this unit been upgraded for disk size?
You have an underlying problem.

The culprits could be:

1) overheating -- you can check internal temperature from System Information Screen

2) Bad power supply

3) Hard drive failing

If its 1 you just need to get it better ventalition and make sure its not sitting on other devices that have heat build up.

If its 2-3 you will need to do some replacement .. which can be a bit much for a non-tech savy person. Google power supply or hard drive replacement for Tivo and see if you think you may be able to handle it.
