I am seeking any help or opinions or advice you can give me! After speaking with TiVo customer support, the future of my TiVo Series 2 DVR looks very grim. I turned my TV on, and the screen just kept saying "Welcome. Powering up..." like it usually does after the electricity has gone out (except we did not lose electricity today). There was no change beyond that screen. Then, I unplugged it, waited 2-3 minutes, and plugged it back in. Nothing. I tried that a couple more times -- and nothing. I called TiVo customer support, and they told me that my DVR has probably died since it is 7 years old. (I have television sets that are 12+ years old -- and they work just fine!) They couldn't tell me whether they thought just the power to the DVR is broken -- or if the hard drive has died. I know that I may have to break down & get a new TiVo DVR, but I am desperately trying to save the 40 hours of TV shows that I am dying to watch that are "trapped" on my old DVR. Is there any way for me to try to repair this myself? Is there anywhere I can take it to see if they can restore the power to it -- and possibly transfer my old recordings? Thank you for any help you can give me!
