Philips 212 Standalone Tivo Problem

When a program is recording, Tivo resets and starts recording again.
It does this two times in a two hour period, so the result is a movie
in three partial recordings.

Unit is not modified and has a 2004 Maxtor 40 GB. I substituted a
Seagate 160 GB, but get the same results. Temp is about 34 deg, so I
don't think it's overheating.

Any ideas on what's causing the problem?

Thanks

AC power problems would certainly cause this. Might try a UPS.

I have a Philips 312 and DTivo on the same power source and neither of
them are shutting down.

May be a defective Tivo power supply. This is a refirbished unit.
