    I have noticed some pixelation issues lately on my Bolt, and it doesn't seem to be caused by a signal strength problem so I'm wondering if my hard drive might be failing. I have been trying for the past hour to get to Kickstart 54 mode to test it, but I can't get it to work. I am able to press Pause, and it looks like it accepts the 54 code. The amber and green lights alternately flash after I put in the code as expected. But the Bolt just boots normally. Am I doing something wrong?

    Are you putting the remote in IR mode (TiVo+C button until the remote light goes red) first?

    Yes, I am putting it in IR mode. Like I said, the Bolt appears to accept my button presses, but it still just starts up as normal. In any case, I ended up removing the drive and hooking it up to my PC to verify the SMART data. Turns out the drive is fine.
