No lights on Tivo box

Weird. My Tivo box appears to be working as per normal but none of the lights on the front are lit. I powered it off via the remote (no lights showing remote control button presses) then pulled the power for a few seconds. It powered on again OK but still no lights. Is this a sign of impending doom and loss of tons of recordings?

Unlikely, sounds like the leds are simply not working

Re: No lights on Tivo box

I'm now debating whether to waste a day waiting for an engineer to either try and fix the lights or replace the thing. The trouble is that I have so many things on the Tivo that I haven't watched yet and I'm pretty sure that there's no way of getting the content either off to a PC or transferred to a new box. Do you happen to know what format the data is saved in on the internal hard drive?

The HDD is encrypted, it cannot be transferred
