    A month or so ago I posted about how my DirecTivo was hanging constantly. The suggestion was I had a bum hard drive so I ordered a replacement from Weakness and slapped it in.

    Everything was running just fine until this week. The TiVo started to hang randomly again.

    Now it won't even turn on.

    When I plug the unit in I get a black screen with the occasional flickers of light at the top and bottom, like a really bad vertical hold or something. I never even get to the "Welcome, powering up..." screen.

    Anyone seen this before? What can I do to fix it? Thanks,

    Neil

    If it wasn't the drive, then it must be the power supply in the unit. You can purchase those from Weaknees as well, I believe.

    DirecTV told me that they would swap mine out for $19 if it failed. Maybe you should stick the bad drive back in and warranty it.

    That would probably be for a non-TiVo R-15, of course.

    Most probally an R15.

    Directv has no Warranty at all on any Directv/Tivo units anymore. At best, they will swap it out for an R15.
