    Got a refurb TiVo Bolt 500 GB during Black Friday sales. Been working fine until today. Was watching live TV, when picture on TV froze. Tried changing tuner, but TiVo would not respond to commands. Tried changing channels on same tuner, also no response. Turned off TV. Turned TV back on; TV says no signal. TiVo light stayed on this whole time. Tried power-cycling TiVo by unplugging power cord. Now no lights appear on TiVo and no signal appears on TV. I can hear what I think is fan spinning now. Please help. Thanks.

    Have you called TiVo yet? This might best be served by an RMA ;/

    Sounds like my roamio base after 97 days of operation; just up and quit!

    Same happened to my Roamio a few days ago. It took about 4 tries plugging it in and unplugging it again, then it worked and has since.
