All Lights on Tivo Roamio Flashing

Googling says it's gone. Only two weeks old. Tried unplugging and plugging back in - no good.

This is the shortest I've had a Tivo Box last

Anyone else had same issue?

Luckily, I can return it (exchange it) with Best Buy and go through the 5 hour setup again

Same here shortest life span of all my tivos.
I had a roamio basic fail, no nothing, after 96 days.

Retired a s1 with the roamio; s1 in continuous use for about 14 years. Last hdd installed I dated in Aug of '05... almost 10 years out of the hdd (seagate.)

Oh yeah, TiVo graciously offered a referb for $50... NO WARRANTY FOR YOU!!!!!!

Does it have a wall wart power supply?

If so check the voltage on the supply. If it in warranty send it back to the TiVo gods.

Good question, without TiVo's internal records. There is no way to know for sure.

I guess a poll could be started asking the question: who had a Roamio fail...?

That would be interesting. You would have to define what "fail" means, since my first Roamio was delivered with two defective tuners. My replacement has been perfect. If you limit it to DOA that would be good. If a death after working, I wouldn't say it would be fair unless you add a place for those with or without a UPS.
