After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!

Try taking the cover off and taking an air compressor and blowing it out real good. I have the exact same one and I had the exact same problem and after i blew it out it worked like new.

I just had the same problem with mine and found another post that at least fixed mine.
I had a DVD in the unit as it was restarting. I took a flathead screwdriver and opened up the DVD slot by inserting at the top right corner and opening the door. On the inside, at the bottom right, is a button that ejects the DVD player (the eject button on the outside won't work while it's booting up). I ejected the DVD that was in it, unplugged the unit for 30 seconds, and then it rebooted just fine.
Hope it works out for you too...
