HD-Tivo Still in "Clear and Delete Everything" for 2 days

I had two 250G HDDs and after 2 years, I can't change channels anymore or picture stutters so I went and set for "Clear and Delete Everything". It has been 2 days and it has not finished. Pull the power plug a couple times, but goes back to the same clearing mode with the red LED blinking.
What to do?

Doo Doo Duuuuuuuuueeeee Doo Doo Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuue

One of your two drives must have taken a dive.

I would pull them, and figure out which it is using the diagnostics.
The obtain a new image (via PTVUpgrade or other places) and reinstall on the good drive and get the bad one replaced.

Earl has it nailed. *Once* I did a Clear and Delete on my 250x2 HR10. It took overnight, but not 2 days.

Time to hit up Newegg (or your favorite source) for a replacement.

Did you at least make a backup of SPs and Thumbs before you upgraded? It's a lifesaver if you did.

Sorry for your loss.

Yup. Mine did the same but I waited for 4 days until getting mine replaced. You've got a bad drive.
