Tivo wont power up? UNPLUG SLIDE REMOTE!!

Sometimes with my S3 Tivo, my downloaded web videos that I subscribe to from revision will not play. I just get a black screen. I have learned to unplug and replug my Tivo back in to fix this. After unplugging myTivo was getting past powering up screen but would freeze on wait a few minutes message. I was pulling my hair out and unplugging my Tivo many times until I realized the slide remote being plugged in wont allow tivo to boot. Unplugged slide remote and then tivo would boot. I guess tivo knows about this but just can't fix it? This seems like a pretty big deal and I imagine have frustrated allot of people before they realized what the problem was or simply thought their tivo was dead. Now I have to live in fear if system reboots while I'm away I'll miss all my recordings.

How old is your S3? Your hard drive might be going bad.
