I think my Roamio Plus just bit it.

    I came home from work today and my Roamio was boot looping from "starting up" I took the hard drive out and ran a diagnostic test on my computer. Sure enough, it failed. So, I ordered a new one. In the mean time, I decided to put the original drive back in it. (On day 1, I swapped the 1tb with a 3tb) The original drive has been in a box ever since. The thing is, the Tivo still won't boot up. No loop. Just "Welcome Starting up" If I reset it, the green led comes on. Never a flash of the amber light. Just frozen. The hard drive is spinning and I've got a consistent 12.2v off the power supply. Anything else to try before I lose my mind and start smashing this thing?

    Out of curiosity, which brand/model 3TB HD failed?
