Tivo-HD TCD652160 Blinking Green Light

The fan and hard drive spin up and the Ethernet lights turn on. However, the tivo does post and it shows no video. Is the power supply shot and/or the motherboard?

Have you tried composite cables and not HDMI? The hdmi ports seem to go bad for no reason on the HD. Don't give up just yet. EDIT....A blinking green light on a S3 in most cases it's needs a reboot for a update. You might go with composite cables then do a reboot.
You can't fix stupid...

I have the same issue on my TivoHD. It started when I upgraded the hard drive. What worked for me is just keeping it plugged in for a few hours. After that I rebooted and it came up fine. It's been running for over 6 weeks now without issue. I'm not ruling out power supply issues, since my old eyes couldn't really tell if they were bulged or not. I use this as a backup unit so I'm less concerned about the problem.
