Advertisements Before i decide to try and replace this thing... i have 2 Tivo Premieres, a regular 2 tuner, and the XL4. They were working fine, but recently started getting pixelization problems. wasn't sure if it was a failing splitter or what. Messing around with the splitter it seemed resolved, except my Premiere 2 was getting much higher signal strengths than my XL4. a bad channel would get 68-70 signal strength on the XL4 and skip sounds or pixelate every few seconds, while the other Tivo would have signal in the 80 on the same channel at the same time. Then weirdness ensued. I tried putting the coax from outside directly with the coax to the Xl4 via an F connector and it wouldn't get any signal. So i put the splitter back on and it was as it was. Decided to try a signal amplifier (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CYMQVG4) today. Plugged it all in, premiere 2 had a nice strong signal close to 90, but the XL4 was blank. No signal. Took out the amplifier and put the splitter back. Same thing. Tried putting the XL4 directly on the outside line, nothing. Ended up taking the XL4 to the other room and plugged it into the coax of the Premiere 2, still nothing. Premier 2 still works fine. The XL4 just cant get a signal. menus and everything else works as normal, but it's like the coax isn't plugged in. Tivo support said the coax input must be dead (didn't offer me any other troubleshooting steps). I tried rerunning guided setup, but nothing. Took out M-card and reinserted. Nope. So! anybody have thoughts? if it IS dead, can i just take the drive from the XL4 and put it in the Premier 2? would like to put the 2TB drive to good use. Or maybe i'll just get a Bolt off of ebay and put it in there... how are the software tools these days? haven't done any drive upgrades in like 7 years.
