    I actually did run into that issue as well with my 1st Roamio Pro and had to exchange it for a new one. NOTE: If you are persistent and unplug it and plug it back in enough times you may be able to get it to boot up eventually, but if it's like mine you will want to return it and get a new one.

    Most likely it is a power supply issue. I wouldn't wait and would exchange it right away.

    Even if it started working again, why would you want to keep it? My first Roamio Pro got stuck on the powering up screen. I unplugged it several times with the same result. When I took it back to BestBuy, and they plugged it in, it booted up without issue. They asked me if I wanted to keep it. There was no way I was keeping that box after what happened. I was surprised they even asked me that.

    If you can get it too boot up you could transfer your shows to a PC/Mac temporarily and then move them back over to the new unit after you swap the external drive over.
