    I have owned a drt800 since nov. 05 and besides the usual complaints of slow channel changing, and the other latency problems, I recently woke up to an unusual problem. The HDD light was on displaying orange, the dvd light is red and the tv screen was completely white. My tivo is unhacked. I called humax and she explains the kickstart 5-7 process. I did that and she told me to not touch it for 3 &1/2 hrs. I hope this works. Has anyone out there had a similar problem? ....after all, misery loves co.

    Thanks

    Update...

    About 15 minutes after I performed the kickstart, a green screen came up and told me that there was a serious error on the HD and it was going to attempt a repair and before i could finish reading the screen, the amber and red lights came on with that dreaded white screen.

    I'm just going to leave it in it's repair mode until tomorrow and see what transpires.

    What happened to your TIVO ? Did it fix itself ?
    Mine was showing this tonight when I got home.
