TiVo box turns itself off and struggles to turn back on.

Hi all,

Does anyone else have the problem with the TiVo box. Turns off randomly then won't fire back up for at least 15 minutes. I just keep getting the "starting up" message switching between 2 fonts.

Thanks
Dan

Technician came out and gave me a new box when that happened to me. Hard drive had gone, easy to transfer all your recordings and series links though, so no biggie

You say it was easy to transfer recordings? How was this achieved?

I assume Mwells66 means that Series Links, Wishlists, & Thumbs can be transferred easily, but recordings most certainly cannot be at all.
