So I got the GSOD followed by a constant rebooting of my 5 month old Tivo Premiere. (Bought 3/9/2012)
Trying to determine my options here.
1.)It sounds like the unit is under limited warranty. Which I think means for $49 or something they will repair it for me. Not sure if someone can confirm this or not. Not sure if that leaves me on hook for shipping?
2.) Replace hard drive. This is assuming I know the problem is the hard drive.
It sounds like GSOD and constant reboot is caused by a bad hard drive. Can anyone confirm that?
I have a 1.5TB drive sitting around anyway. I figured I could use that vs spending money getting my current tivo repaired. Here is my issue. My current Tivo is dead. So where do I get a premiere image? I have a friend with a premiere. Can I use his Tivo hard drive and load that onto my Tivo? any issues with doing that?
