    I almost had a meltdown today.

    I lost the familiar beeps and boops from my Cable Roamio today, which HAS happened before and the only thing that cured it was a simple reboot.

    I did the "simple" reboot and after the familiar "a few minutes more" message, my Roamio's lights all started blinking furiously. Nothing would stop this, including several reboots.

    I frantically started searching furiously for a quickie fix, and I stumbled across a post somewhere, that said the wall-wart power supply was probably going bad.

    I started rummaging in my endless boxes of old computer junk and found a power supply that seemed to match the specs on the Roamio's. It was a 12V, 2.0 amp unit. So I plugged it in and rebooted and, VOILA!, it booted right up. I went on Amazon and bought a spare immediately.

    Hope this might help someone if they run into this same problem in the future!
