Advertisements TiVoHD that was purchased new in 2009 and never set up. Going through guided setup it gets to the part where it connects to TiVo service the second time (getting program information?) and during the loading of the data it will sort of blip, start back at the "Powering Up" screen and then go to a solid grey screen. Did this last night. I unplugged and let sit overnight. Tried again this morning and same thing at the same place. I've read that this was an issue with units shipped around this time. Is there ANYTHING I can do with it? Or do I just have a doorstop? Just a bit of background. Bought this unit on eBay. Was advertised as "received as present for Christmas 2009 and never used". Received unit yesterday and while it does appear to be never used/used lightly (absolutely NO dust around fan on back, etc., has original box, the original styrofoam and an unopened/sealed plastic bag containing all the cords, cables and remote) the tivo itself wasn't still wrapped in plastic and there was an extra power cord loose in the box. This leads me to wonder if the guy did in fact receive as present, couldn't get it to work, sent off for replacement (tivo box has Best Buy packing slip attached dated 12/2/2009), replacement didn't work either so he thought forget it, threw it in box and in a corner. Where it sat until I just bought it on eBay.
