    I bought a Tivo model tcd1400060 and choose DELETE EVERYTHING on the system restart menu. I let it sit overnight and now is still thinking. I tried a hard reboot but it just goes back to the same tivo screen and the red light on the front just flashes. If I need to do something different let me know

    Thanks

    Your Tivo is defective. Return it for a replacement.

    This is not the same problem as the original poster. His TiVo is stuff on the Delete everything screen. You need to split the cable and feed one line to the TV and the other to the cable box. Then the cable box goes to the TiVo for recording from that. You can then record cable box channels and watch analog straight to the TV.

    Replace or reimage the drive would be my next step. If you might want to reimage the drive, I'd put it in a PC and run some diagnostics on it to verify that it is okay.
