I know this is a common problem as I have searched high and low for answers on how to fix it, but I haven't seen anything on how to prevent it. I know TiVo Support keeps telling me that this may happen if you are not plugged directly into the wall and are using a powerstrip, but I've personally debunked that theory by plugging it directly into the wall, and what do you know? I have a power outage and when the power comes back on, the TiVo lights do not. Does anyone know of any "affordable" way of preventing this? I've looked at some things, but they are pricey, as in the $130 and up range, and I don't even know if they'd do the job. Thanks.
