    Our old TIVO stopped working. We had installed a new HD replacing one that was working fine. I reinstalled the old one that had been working when replaced and the TIVO is still dead, 2 amber lights but no action.
    Amazon has a kit that I'm wondering if it would help get the stuff off. I have a new TIVO ordered that has a USB in port and the Amazon kit seems to go from an ide drive to usb.

    Both drives are probably still fine.

    It's likely the power supply. Just because it's working enough to light the front panel doesn't mean it's working properly.

    The good news is it's almost certainly due to faulty capacitors, which can be replaced fairly cheaply.
