Tivo Elite Yellow Ring blinks every2 seconds

I came down to check out my Tivo Elite this morning. The yellow ringed light that comes on when signal is sent from the remote is blinking every two seconds. When I go to live TV, it goes into that slow pause/play icon slow mode.
I have rebooted the Tivo three times.
Once, without the network cable. The ring did not start until I plugged the network cable back in. The ring continued after I unplugged the cable again.
I removed the remote control from the room. no change.
I turned off devices with Tivo clients that communicate over the network (ipads). no change.
Any ideas?

No idea what's going on but some things to try to see if it changes anything:
Turn off Network Remotes in the Tivo settings.
Block the IR sensor on the front of the Tivo with something opaque. I use a VHS cassette for this.
Unplug the Ethernet going to your ISP instead of the one going to the Tivo.

Resolved!!!

This was a fun one. To make a long story short, it was the Tivo remote that has the keyboard that uses bluetooth that was the problem. It was at the bottom of a drawer long forgotten about. Unplugging the USB bluetooth key from the back of the Tivo that resolved the problem.
