    This morning I did try to turn on my Tivo Premiere and i only saw black screen. I did unplug it and I saw Tivo Logo saying Welcome Starting Up...then is turned to Almost There Just a few minutes more....and after that goes to black screen? On my Tivo box i have green light on, and between Welcome Starting UP and Almost There Just a few minutes more I saw yellow light blinking on my Tivo. But now I am just stuck on the black screen???

    What could be wrong?

    I think black is the new GSOD. (Green Screen of Death, what you get when it's trying to fix itself and you shouldn't unplug it. There's recent discussion of this elsewhere on this site)

    Had the same issue last night, but when I rebooted, it returned to normal.
