Basic Roamio hookup hdmi but no start up screens

Front panel lights light up and remote works the lights. Can put the Roamio in standby and out by doing it blind aol Just waited to see if it would. Could hard drive cause something like this?

Highly unlikely it's the hard drive. If I had to guess, I would say perhaps your HDMI port is busted. I'm not familiar with the Romio Basic but I believe it has a composite video out so you may want to try that and see if you get any video output.

there are at least a couple of other threads about roamios with suspected hdmi port issues:

At the risk of being Capt. Obviouse, have you selected the correct input on the TV? Is it a known good cable?

Make sure your HDMI cable is plugged in all the way in, sometimes there's a click. Check both ends.
