    Tonight my Premiere of a sudden shuts down. I unplug it and it starts up but when get before the thx screen a screen comes up telling to press the tivo button to start the dvr. I never seen that screen when it starts up. Could some one tell me why it did that for?

    Did it really shut down (HDD off, etc) or could it have just gone into Standby mode? I have no idea why it would do that, but the extra startup screen sounds like it was in Standby when you rebooted.

    There was no lights on the front. If it was in standby would the the green light be on?

    My Premiere is recording something, but I just now put it into Standby to test. All lights on the front panel went out. (I assume it's still recording.)

    I did not know that I never used stand by. Now I wonder why it went into standby mode? I was not watching it at the time my s3 was being watched at the time.
