I bought a Tivo model tcd1400060 and choose DELETE EVERYTHING on the system restart menu. I let it sit overnight and now is still thinking. I tried a hard reboot but it just goes back to the same tivo screen and the red light on the front just flashes. If I need to do something different let me know

Thanks

Your Tivo is defective. Return it for a replacement.

I just set up my tivo with comcast and have the same question.. I can't seem to record on on echannel and watch the other.
This is not the same problem as the original poster. His TiVo is stuff on the Delete everything screen. You need to split the cable and feed one line to the TV and the other to the cable box. Then the cable box goes to the TiVo for recording from that. You can then record cable box channels and watch analog straight to the TV.
