    Wife and I just moved into our new home today. Upon reconnecting the TiVo HD XL, we were greeted to a blinking green light and nothing else. The TiVo also has WD MyBook AV attached. I've powered everything off and on again a few times, but no joy. Saw a few mentions of the flashing green light here on the boards, too, but wasn't able to reach a conclusion from my reading. Any help? Plan to give TiVo HQ a ring in the morning. We are sad.

    Double check the cable connecting that external to the TiVo.

    Worth a try; seems to be OK. Perhaps I should get another cable and try with that?

    If you start reading about midway through the many pages of this thread:

    you'll see that lots of people solved their external drive problem by swapping cords until they found one that worked.
