    I see the same issue in the DVRBars thread. Does anyone have an image that works correctly?
    thanks

    That could be a problem with the servers at TiVo, or even somewhere on the internet between you and TiVo. Here's an old thread where something at Comcast got misconfigured and people had to change the MTU setting on their router as a workaround.

    I wish... Other tivos in the household have no problems. the "problem" Tivo just connected to the servers 2 days ago before I decided to wipe it out.

    Here is the timeline:
    - I use my Premier XL only in the basement to connect to SlingBox so I can watch shows on my extensive travels.
    It connects to my main Bolt box just to stream shows off it via SlingBox to wherever I am traveling.
    - I accidentally deleted Bold from Premier XL as a device it connects to, and thought that "clear and delete everything" would fix it.
    - As others have mentioned, I now have the P-XL in a loop trying to delete everything with no way to get out of the loop.
    - This is why I decided to wipe / re-image the P-XL
    - And now, this is what's happening, i.e. can't get passed the Guided Setup screen.

    The HDD has never had issues and has been checked via SMART kick start codes and all tests passed.

    thank you for your help.
