I have a lifetimed S2 that was displaying a message about the DVR being shut down due to getting too hot. So I unplugged it, opened it, and cleaned out the dust. It did seem like after cleaning it, the fan spins faster than it did before, so maybe the dust was slowing down the fan speed causing the overheating. The problem is, when I try to power it on, I do hear the fan spinning, but there's no video, other than a faint white flicker that kind of scrolls down the screen. So no TiVo starting up screen or anything. Does this mean the TiVo is dead, or might there be something else I can try? My wife is worried about two things: 1) There are lots of shows on the HD she doesn't want to lose. I told her maybe the problem is with the motherboard, and maybe her shows can still be salvaged from the HD 2) Her To Do list has lots of stuff, that she would like to record, but right now, the TiVo no worky. I'd love it if the TiVo can be saved, but if not, it'd be nice if my lifetime sub doesn't have to be forfeited. Years ago I lost an S1 due to motherboard problems, and I lucked out with customer service, as they let me as one-time favor, transfer my lifetime from it, to a TiVo HD. They did say "one time favor", so unlike a cat, I may not have two lives, let alone nine. If I have to replace the TiVo, my wife did say she'd prefer an S2, and not a Premier or whatever's on the market these days, because Time Warner copyrights a heapload of her shows, preventing her from using HMO, but S2's seem to be exempt from this copywriting shenanigans.
