Advertisements Greetings, I picked up a Mini that was described as having a dead HDMI port. Plugged it in via HDMI, sure enough, there was no video, not even the TiVo startup screen. Next stop was a component connection using component cables borrowed from another Mini using a component connection -- no video from that connection either. I also cycled through the unit's resolution settings using the button on the bottom when connected via both HDMI and component (TiVo Mini failure). No luck there. My next step was to compare this unit's observed boot behavior with a known working Mini. This observation revealed that the dead unit's front LED remained at a steady white/pink color, as compared to the working unit's LED which started out white, then blinked reddish as the unit booted up. The dead unit isn't connecting to my ethernet network (no link light) or else I'd try the connection method suggested here -- Tivo Mini has YELLOW light on front It appears that the unit has been bricked somehow, perhaps either by a recent update before I purchased it (Dec 2016 update maybe bricked my minis?) or some other cause (Mini in Boot Loop?!? Recommendations). Any suggestions? Has anyone physically cracked open a Mini to troubleshoot? Thanks!
