    TiVo is replacing mine with a Bolt. It’s just in a loop now, never getting past Starting Up screen.

    :eek: Egad, you've probably vibrated a few cold solder joints free at this point.

    You probably have a failing power supply. I read somewhere about TiVo using super cheap power supplies, and them wearing out. I had a spare from having them swap out a full replacement unit due to a separate problem.

    My unit was acting flaky, pixelating, super slow menus, rebooting at times. Finally it got so bad it wouldn’t boot up (reboot loop). Basically when the HD started spinning up using/asking for more power and the supply couldn’t give it - it restarted and would try the whole thing again.

    So try to swap out for a new power supply. I did that and basically my whole TiVo became brand new - fast, no more reboots etc.
