My Series 2 Tivo has been working fine for over a year. Then suddenly I cannot
turn it on unless I unplug the power chord then plug it back in. It will then work
for a day or 2. Then it happens again. Also, it won't record when it's in the not powering on mode, until I have unplugged it from the power outlet and re-plugged. So, I have no idea when it goes off or on and costantly needs to unplug
and plug...

Any idea what is wrong and more importantly, how to fix this?

Thanks!

Could be a failing hard drive. Do you notice any pixelation when the TiVo is working or slow remote control response. These also are signs of hard drive beginning to fail.

Ah! Yes, that makes a lot of sense. I have been thinking to upgrade the disk, so
I guess now I need to stop "thinking" and "just do it". Thanks!
