I can't get my first boot up screen "Your Recorder is Starting Up Please wait a moment", but after like 10 seconds of white static, my second grey "almost there..." then the tivo animation come up fine. Tivo has been stopping once in awhile then not starting again without letting machine rest 5 min or so. I have run diagnostics on the 2 80 gig Western Digitals and came back with no errors on extended tests. I have placed the original hard drive back in and several other quantum SA images that were laying around and they will not give me the inital screen back either. I have also tried a new hard drive cable to no avail. Any help would be appreciated!


HDR212 with 3.0
2- 80 gig Wester Digital hard drives blessed with tivo mad.

It has been a while, but I seem to recall that the first screen was not sent to all outputs. I think it went to line out, but not RF, since the rf module is software configured and not set till the kernel is booted...
