Advertisements I received the infamous screen on my Tivo Series 3 HD (attached). I am optimistic that it is not my internal hard drive but my external hard drive. I bought the 1 TB My DVR expander in late 2011. It worked great until April 2016. It caused lots of pixelation and caused tivo to slow down. So I unhooked it. After a while I bought a new Esata cable thinking it might help. I hooked it up last night. It appeared to work just fine last night saying storage device now ready for use with this Tivo. This morning I noticed the Tivo was very sluggish and pixelation. So I unhooked the hard drive and attempted to restart the tivo (I've done this before thinking I'd get the message that it could not detect external storage please do this to continue w/out using it, bla bla). Now I was told it's been on the green screen. I'm hoping it's the external and not internal. Any way to get out of the green screen?
