Hello. Based on research sounds like my Tivo's hard drive has gone to a better place. The first set of recent issues were recording related, would say no signal found when there really was one. Finally it settled on an endless loop of "Welcome, Powering up" to "Almost there", then back to "Welcome, Powering up". Have tried several times, and it just stays stuck on this loop and never advances past "Almost there". So based on research it sounds like I need to replace the Hard Drive. I'm wondering if I should even bother contacting Tivo, or if I should just go ahead and order a kit from the only two suggestions I've seen: www.dvrupgrade.com and www.WeaKnees.com Anyone know what options Tivo can offer, or if I would get a cheaper deal through the 2 websites mentioned? I've seen YouTube video on how to replace it, I feel I can do it. Here's my info to help answer my questions: 2005 Tivo Series 2 , model TCD540040 with a Lifetime Sub., No longer under warranty Thanks for any info.
