I was readingabout how some people got screwed by uying Tivos on fleabhay which had outstanding bills on them and folks couldn't activate them without paying up, so I just wondered if the one I just cannibalized taking out the bracket to instal my new drive into the other Tivo, and checked to see what the status of it was with Tivo. To my surprise I discovered that it was one of my own with lifetime sub on it. I bought several on fleabay way back. I forgot all about this one. I hooked it up, and the left light was flashing green and orange, but mainly orange. There was no video on the tv except one flicker right at the beginning. Disconnecting the hard drive didn't make any difference. Checked the voltage going to the hd and it was 5 VDC and 11.8 VDC. Didn't see any burned or smelly components. Re-seated the white ribbon cables. Did't clean the contacts with alcohol yet. I hope this box can be saved. Appreciate any and all help.
