For the last week Tivo has started restarting randomly and then freezes on the starting up screen. When trying to watch recorded programs the Tivo locks up for several minutes before starting playback, remote control has no control of switching back to TV, little green light flashes to acknowledge the remote has requested an action but no action is taken. When playback does start there is no fast forward or 30s jump, these just freeze the playback. Tried unplugging and leaving for10/20/30 minutes but no change, just take forever to restart.
Tivo restarted several times, all the lights flashing like a Christmas tree then just sits there, TV reports no signal from the Tivo. Pressing the on/off button on the Tivo does nothing have to switch it off with the switch on the back of the unit. Is my Tivo box dead?
