    C701 is definitely a 2200uf 25V as that's what I just pulled from my original power supply. Cap replaced now I have to wait till I get home to power it up and see what happens. Crossing my fingers...

    UPDATE: Sadly, no change. Still have the original error. Looks like I have to go to plan B and replace the box. The unfortunate issue is that this is my box w/ the lifetime. 'Fortunately', Tivo is offering to discount a refurb unit and transfer my lifetime to that box. It's much more than I 'think' I should be paying for a customer that's been w/ them since the late 90's but at least that box will have a warranty for a period of time and I'll have some newer, Premiere-level features.

    Thanks to Unitron and pmiranda for the guidance and suggestions. It was worth giving a shot and would've been nice if it had worked.

    Yeah, I just opened up the 648 I just got and it's definately a 25V cap.

    I wonder if your 648 isn't savable, though. It could be there are one or more other bad caps that aren't showing visible signs.
