My TiVo box keeps making a grinding sound then freezes and restarts itself. It doesn't always restart properly neither. It spent several hours this morning stating the starting up screen to then go black saying no signal to then return to starting up screen. It did this for the first time yesterday but restarted straight away. I decided to unplug it all and use our second standard box which kept saying the card wasn't registered? Or something and had majority of channels missing. Have re connected the TiVo box and it has just restarted itself after failing to twice. Not sure what is going on. Do I need a new TiVo box?
The box restarted eventually and has since reset itself once. It has been fine since then until now. It has froze and tried to reboot half hour ago and has yet to come back on. Keeps flashing black then starting up screen. I've noticed that if it comes up on starting up screen without the little red clock before it it will not restart. I've switched it off at the back and put it back on just now and it tried to start twice before it's just come onto starting up screen with the clock so would seem it is now coming back on but obviously with this happening regularly now it's not good
