    The display on my tivo is scattered with red dots. It goes away with a hard reset of the tivo (unplung the tivo). It comes back and I'm not sure what is causing it? I have an expanded hard drive in my tivo s3 and it mostly works. The red dots are static on the screen almost like a background layer that is bad.

    Any ideas out there?

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Would it be possible to post a screen shot of what you're seeing?

    Not easily.... the pattern changes everytime it happens, but it is scattered across the entire screen and remains steady in position.
