    My Premiere was a little louder than normal for a while. Then a really loud groaning noise started coming from the unit, and then it shut down. When I try to restart it, sometimes it's loud and sometimes it's not, but it doesn't make it through the setup process before shutting down again.

    Any ideas or suggestions? This unit is out of warranty.

    With my TiVo HD a "loud groaning noise" is usually me when I realize the TA has lost the SDV channels again. :D

    Seriously though, what are the moving parts in a TiVo? The HDD and the fan. Check to verify the fan is running and isn't making the noise.
