When I turned my Series 2 Tivo on - the TV, actually - I saw the main screen which displayed the "Almost There... just a few more minutes." That was last night. About 14 hours later, the same message is on the screen. I feel like pulling the plug to power down the TiVo, but I'm not sure if that will screw it up any more. My wife did say that earlier yesterday, there was a message that displayed something about a "service date... will take an hour or longer." I suppose the system rebooted and now I am stuck with the "almost there" message. Any else having this problem or can share any advice that might help? Thanks!
