    My TiVo has completely lost the HD menus and will not switch back to them when selected in settings.

    I've contacted TiVo support and I have done the following...

    - Power cycled the unit (multiple time)
    - Repeated Guided Set-Up (multiple time)
    - Clear and deleted everything
    - Tried thumbs down-thumbs up-play-play
    - Tried thumbs down-thumbs up-pause-pause
    - Hard start then at welcome screen just as the yellow ring lights select pause-5-7 at this point I get a green screen that says the TiVo box has a serious problem. It completes this process then restarts and still no HD menus.
    - I reinstalled the original 320GB drive and same issue
    - Reinstalled a clean TCD746320 original image
    - Tried multiple HDMI cables
    - Tried a newer HDTV

    The TiVo's Details

    - Model: TCD746320
    - Software Version: 20.7.4.RC42-746-2746
    - Unit was upgraded with a TCD746500 HD with no issues

    Any suggestions on this weird glitch?

    Menu shows it's capable to show the HDUI but UI is in classic.

    Okay, I bought a second Premiere and will see how that goes as this TiVo still has no HD menus, the system information page shows its capable but no go, I try to switch over and it just stays on the regular menu so I cannot access the apps like Netflix and such. I'll add photos and a link to a video to show what I mean.

    Does anyone have anyway to contact any elevated support that is based in the US?

    How about just backup your OnePasses and Thumbs and do a Clear and Delete All?

    Download any shows you want to keep...

    Comparing your SI to mine there is only one difference: Opt Status. I can't say that's the cause of your problems, but you have done everything I can think of to fix the problem with no effect.

    The only elevated support in the U.S. is probably in Heaven. :)

    Oh yeah, one more thing: "Opt-Out" privacy status eliminates HD menus

    So odd that this is the reason... HD menus are there again!
