I've submitted a similar post on tivocommunity but have not recv. any replies addressing possible issues with my UPS.
Here's my situation, I have a Hughes HDVR2 unit that I upgraded with two - 120 GB hard drives about 2 years ago. About two weeks ago I got the 6.2 upgrade (with folders and a few extras). This unit has been plugged into a BrickWall surge protector for about 2 months now.
Last weekend I installed an APC 1400 SmartUPS based on msgs. I found in this forum. (The power goes from the wall, to brickwall to ups to tivo + tv + amp + dvd)
The symptom I am having is that while watching live TV during the day (at night while watching recorded TV doesn't seem to have any issues), the DirecTivo unit will "reboot / restart" on its own for now apparrent reason. I thought it was the Tivo unit and called DTV, but they were of no help to fix my current unit.
To try an eliminate the UPS, I unplugged the Tivo from the UPS and plugged it into the brickwall (so I have power to brickwall to tivo + ups to tv + amp + dvd). Tivo was still rebooting. (I have a DLP TV and when the unit would reboot, I would not notice any power flux on the TV. Maybe the Tivo is more sensitive???)
Thinking that maybe the UPS was drawing a power surge, I completely disconnected the UPS and plugged all of my comps. back into the brickwall. So far I have not witnesses any reboots since Sat. night.
I'm still waiting to hear back from refurbups support. In the mean time, I going to relocate the UPS to a PC and see if one of my PC has the same issues Tivo did.
My question to you guys/ladies, has anyone else had similar issues with the UPS and Tivo combo, please let me know. Any suggestions on how to trouble shoot or remedy this situtaion would also be appreciated.
