Arriving back from my holiday, I was greeted by my Living Room Tivo Bolt+ 3TB system as a brick with all LEDS flashing. I powered down and up and nothing. Read about the lights being a hard drive failure and opened up the system, reformatted the drive and tested it. No errors were found. Reading more forum threads, I removed the partition and used diskpart to clean the drive and re-inserted the "empty" drive, I got the Tivo logo for a bit and then just a blank screen with all flashing LEDs. I used the power supply from my bedroom Tivo and still the same. Can anyone help me determine if there is something else I need to do to get an empty drive working again? I'm about to try the sata to external drive method. When the tivo formats the drive, what should I expect to see on the screen? PS- The hard drive does spin up and I can read and write to it while plugged into (and formatted for) a desktop but not sure how to get Tivo to begin formatting it for use.
