V6 Unimpededly rebooted all by itself - was this for an update?

Last night at 9:35pm, my V6 rebooted all by itself (when right back to the Welcome screen and took a good 5 minutes before tv came back) whilst I was watching tv.

It has never done this before and didn't really think that much of it, that is until this morning when I read this post from @Ernie_C who said that his 360 ALSO rebooted at the same exact time :

This is more than just a coincidence and now I'm wondering if VM  inadvertently pushed out some kind of update which caused boxes to reboot??!

For the record, my V6 is currently on firmware 20.10.1.1.RC5.VMB-11-C68

Thoughts?

Off-hand, I'd be very interested to know what sort of update would be cross-platform and need pushing to both 360 & TiVo/V6.

I'd have thought software updates would be unique to each platform.

Re: V6 Unimpededly rebooted all by itself - was this for an update?

...my V6 seems to have a mind of its own today??!

Since posting my initial post this morning (its now 2:15pm at the time of this post) , my box has come out of Standby TWICE (from red light to white light) whilst the tv has been off the whole day???!

 

What's going on???

Either RF interference, or the box has rebooted and come out of standby.

On a V6, press "info" from live TV and scroll to the bottom tab where the tuner status are all displayed. After a reboot, 5 of the 6 tuners will be on Ch998

@deans6571 

My 9:35 re-boot was Friday, not Sunday.

....checked last night and it was indeed a full reboot with 5 tuners being reset back to channel 998.

Not really sure why the box would do a reboot on its own whilst we were watching tv???!

🙁

Hi Deans6571,

Thanks for your post on the forums, I am sorry to hear your V6 decided to reset itself!

Although we don't have any access to update information on the servers, it does sound like it may have been an update that caused it. 

Sorry if it caused some disruption on your Sunday night!

How is the box running today?

Thanks,

Megan_L

Hi!

The box seems to have been behaving since then with no further issues.

Perhaps just a glitch in the matrix then....!!!

😁
