Came home today to find the Tivo THD sitting there with all 4 leds glowing.
Flipped the TV on, and it was ok - went to main menu - tried to change menus and it froze on the "waiting" -
Unplugged... waited... plugged back in hoping for the best - yeah right
I opened it up, nothing seems bad -
The fan is running; really slow, and the Ethernet port leds are on, but the WD1600AVVS disk doesn't seem to be spinning correctly... I can put my ear to it and I hear a motor, but very soft... not sure what it normally sounds like.
SO - OPTIONS -
is it the disk, the power supply, the motherboard ?
Will Tivo replace the unit ?
or should I upgrade to a different Tivo unit ?
or go to a larger unit ?
At this point - of course we don't know if the disk is recoverable or not....
Unit was received on 3/23/10 - as an RMA for another THD that only ran for a couple of months. So this one ran for 1yr & 7mons,
