    Here's the scenario:
    My Tivo Series 2 was skipping from channel to channel and acting strange.

    I decided to Reset the Tivo....
    At the point it asked for my ZipCode, I entered it, then the Tivo froze. No remote buttons work at this point.

    Note: Did not finish Set-Up successfully.

    I turn the Tivo Off and unplug the phone line, wait 5 minutes.
    I turn the Tivo On and plug-in the phone line.

    Tivo is up, residing on a channel.
    But nothing works on the remote. Pressing the Tivo button does nothing.
    The Tivo light on the box is Yellow, so I know the remote is working.



    Please help me!

    Unplug the unit all together again and start fresh.

    Sounds like you hard drive may be failing.

    How long ago did you purchase it? Did you purchase it from a retail store? If yes, and it was less than 30 days I would take it back and exchange it for a new unit.
