Advertisements Good afternoon, I turned on my TV today to see a purple-tinted "Almost there. Just a few minutes more..." on my tivo. I unplugged the unit, waited 15 seconds, and plugged it back in. This time it sat at the initial powering up screen for about a half hour before hitting the "almost there" screen. I looked up the kickstart instructions here, and unplugged the unit again, pressing the pause button when it turned on. However, the tivo did not acknowledge that it was receiving any remote signal, and the no light other than the green LED came on. It went to "almost there" in one or two minutes. I didn't really time it, it just happened faster than I expected. It is still stuck at "almost there." Does anyone have any advice or troubleshooting tips before I pull the drive and replace it with the original?
