Advertisements I have a Tivo Bolt (500 GB), used only for OTA, no cable card installed. Upon turning on the TV, I was greeted by the "Almost there, a few more minutes message". Reboot did not help. I get the initial Tivo splash screen, then after several long minutes of no signal to the TV, the "Almost there" message appears. The lights are not flashing, upon power up I get green, and a brief flash of yellow, but remains green in the end. Going down the failed hard drive path, I decided to try an old 3.5 drive (230 GB) I had laying around to confirm, only to discover the same problem - Almost there. When initially inserted, all the lights flashed for a little, but eventually stopped - I guess this is part of the format and unrecognized drive. I know it formatted the drive as it was unreadable when installed back into a PC, which required a reformat to be recognized by Windows. Now I'm not convinced it's the drive. Does anyone have any ideas? There isn't much information on the bootup sequence for these, so hard to troubleshoot. I'm hesitant to send it in for repair if it's something I can do on my own. Do I have a more serious problem?
