Advertisements It looks like I have the same Mini TCA93000 issue that many others are having. Stuck at TiVo guy startup screen (with a few flickers from the very faint led on the front). I have not received the same replacement offer that others did, so my options are limited (and expensive). I don't want to "recycle" the device just yet. Has anyone popped one open and attempted to flash the firmware with a known good firmware image with a SPI programmer? The device is pretty much dead so I don't seen any real risk in it. Just wondering if this is even something I should investigate. Thanks for any help.
