My DirecTiVo (Hughes) receiver is stuck on the "Welcome. Powering up..." screen.

I've tried unplugging, waiting, and plugging back in. I've tightened all connections. I've checked the connections at the dish. My other receiver (non-TiVo) in another room works just fine. Signal strength is 90+.

Any ideas?

Did you also disconnect the signal/antenna lead and the phone line as well as the power? When my box locked up, the advice was to disconnent "everything".

YMMV

A few people have had this problem. The answer is over at the Tivo Community in the DirecTV section.

Thanks, Robert!

Unfortunately, the problem seems to be a hard disk crash. I didn't see the warning sign, which was a picture that froze every few seconds. We were suffering high winds at the time and I attributed the freezing to the winds.

I have a new unit that works fine. Later I'll try removing the hard drive from the old unit, attaching it to my computer and trying to fix it.
