    I unplugged my Premier XL4 last night and when I plugged it back in it would not power on. I let it set for a long time and plugged it in and still no luck. i then took all the cables and Cablecard out and let it set and plugged it in. No luck there either.

    I called Tivo and they suggested all the above and then gave up and are sending me a new one.

    So I left it all unplugged and everything last night. Out of curiosity, I plugged it in this morning. Id did not immediately power one. After a couple hours I went and checked it again and it is powered on now.

    I've noticed something like this before. Is there a trick to getting this thing to power on?

    I will replace the box with what they send me, but am more curious about what is going on with this thing. I remembered reading a thread that I can't find now about having to unplug the cables to get it to power on.

    No trick, but check your outlet in the wall, and make sure your AC line cord is not partly cut someplace.
