    Whenever my Roamio Basic is recording anything, both the red and blue front panel circles are lit up.

    Perhaps a short in my front panel?

    The blue one is meant to indicate that the TiVo is transferring something via the network.

    "The lights on the front panel provide important information about the status of your DVR. The table below shows the meaning of the lights.
    Green = Power is on
    Amber/Yellow =Light flashes when a signal is received from remote.
    Light is steady when a phone call is in progress.

    Red =means Recording in progress
    Blue =means Transfer or download in progress
    Light flashes when a transfer is interrupted

    I know what it's supposed to indicate, but say if I'm watching Live TV and hit Record, both circles come on; when I stop it both go off.

    Sounds like I need a replacement. :(

    No change, called TiVo and they confirmed it sounds like a hardware issue.

    I've contacted Amazon for a replacement.
