Advertisements I"ve been a TiVo user and forum member a long time. I know how a failing hard drive behaves and my 13 month old TiVo HD was perfect. UNTIL I watched a show using Netflix video on demand when it promptly froze and will no longer reboot. Dead as a doornail. Tried everything including going through a CSR and it is bricked. One month out of warranty I'm out $400. Furious would be an understatement. I have no doubt that there is a fatal error in the Netflix VOD system that did this. Not only is Netflix buggy as hell but TiVo has released an actually malicious feature that has the capacity to brick your unit. BEWARE. OK An update. TiVo CSR stepped up to the plate and RMAed my unit for $49 despite being like 2 weeks out of the 1 year warranty. I've always had good experience with tivo phone support, even more so since they got rid of that horrible voice activated system. Now ironically after troubleshooting for several hours I managed to kickstart the unit back to life. It will not however boot up with the WD External storage HD which makes me think that HD was corrupted and this took down the TiVo. I am still absolutely convinced that a fatal error in the Netflix VOD software caused this. There is just no other plausable explanation. So now I have a replacement unit on it's way and my old unit seems to be working, albeit without the external storage. Lifetime service is also scheduled to be transferred to this new unit. What do I do now????
