Have you opened up the external enclosure and removed the drive?
Which model (starts with TCD) TiVo do you have?
It's a: TCD652160.
I'm still working on the problem of repetative reboot and now believe it's not the drive.
1. Rebooting - put in new drive - lasted 3 months - got drive reformated - lasted another 3 months - just out of warranty.
2. Got new drive & power supply.
Put in new PS wouldn't boot.
Put back old power supply & new drive - booted & worked for 1 month then started rebooting.
2. Put old drive back in and it magically worked good for three days than started RB.
Hooked up new drive and it ok so far, 1 day.
