A month ago our tuning adapter got messed up in a storm. This week another storm came in and knocked out the power just long enough to reboot all the electronics in the house, with an average boot time of 6 minutes and fear of pissing off the tuning adapter, I put the TiVo and the tuning adapter on a UPS.
The same storm annoyed my network equipment upstairs: Toshiba PCX1100U cable modem, Linksys WRT54G wireless router, Motorola VT1005 Vonage adapter and D-Link gigabit switch. So I ordered a UPS for them as well. I might add the server to the UPS as well but really it’s not that important that it stay up during a power outage.
