tivo so3 error and no video
This is my first time posting to the forums and this seems like a good place to start. This is my first TiVo issue after having 2 boxes. The past few weeks ago, we experienced an ice storm and when they were repairing the power lines it made my power flicker like crazy. Since this issue my TiVo informed me it needed me to download program info. This is when the so3 error occurred. A few days ago I was messing around with my surge protector and changed my coaxials. Now. The TiVo won't even show basic channels. I even plugged up the coax to the tv and it appears to be working fine. Here is a list of things I have done. Hard and soft reset, completed guided setup, called cable company and requested signal reboot. The TiVo is the hundred dollar model from bestbuy and I have a western digital 1tb, expandable hd. The next attempt I am going to try is a complete factory reset. Anyone got some suggestions?
Ps. I have also tried the pause 57 trick, and all it did was put me thru guided setup
