Adding a 2nd drive failed and I tried to restore the drive. But now when I start up with my restored drive, it hangs at the start up screen (semi-black screen). Any suggestions?

which back up methode did you use?
do you have a locked drive?
did you get error messages during the restore operation (or backing up)
was the back up from a two two drive unit or a single drive....
was the drive configuration the same while backing up and restoring?
what's the type and brand of your unit?
what software version do you have a back up from.?

please edit your msg with all relevant (or irrelevant) info you can come up with.

one more issue: if you made a backup before tivo upgraded your software your heading for trouble.
