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.
