Advertisements I apologize for any missing information here, I'm trying to help my mom solve her Tivo troubles. She has a Tivo Premiere that we bought last year to replace her previous Tivo when she upgrade to HDTV. It's been generally working ok, with the occasional menu hang (which many others experience) which she solves by unplugging and re-plugging the Tivo. But recently she's been experiencing a very frequent problem that I haven't seen described here. If you go to the list of recorded programs and try to play any one of them, the green spinning arrows ("I'm busy") will appear and continue to spin indefinitely. Once again, she has to unplug the Tivo and restart it. Sometimes that will fix things for a bit, and sometimes it will do the same thing and hang up with the spinning arrows. She called Tivo and they gave her advice which doesn't seem particularly relevant to me; they recommend plugging the Tivo directly into the wall instead of a power strip because it "might not be getting enough power." I don't think AC power works that way; a power strip shouldn't result in reduced current to a device, should it? In any case, this isn't something she can immediately try since to access the power strip and wall plug, the TV will have to be lifted off its wall mount. I'm thinking hard disk corruption? I sent her instructions on doing the built-in test and maybe that will turn up something. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas or thoughts? Other info: Tivo's WiFi antenna connected via USB; there's also a tuning adapter from the cable company, can't remember for sure but I think that's USB too.
