So after 7 years of nearly continuous uptime, with not a single soft reset that entire time, the primary hard drive in my original, series 1 Tivo is beginning to fail. It’s possible the add-on drive, which is a mere 6.5 years old, is dying, too.
The drive in our TivoHD lasted 13 months (with, of course, a 12 month warranty and no sympathy).
7 years. That’s ridiculous.
