Hughes DirecTivo dies mysteriously...
My Hughes GXCEB0T died Saturday morning.
As I read through posts here, I find that
"syst1" had the EXACT same failure on the
day before...no boot, no TiVO logo,
hard drive won't spin up if it's plugged into the TiVO box (works fine with a computer).
1) What's the chance that I was sent a buggy
update that zapped the mainboard?
2) Where can I find the logs that will show
the last activity (post-mortem)?
I talked with the repair person at Lakeview Comm, and I'm looking at $250 to replace the mainboard.
Same problem but fixed easily, see my post in this thread:
Looks like several people had a problem all on Saturday morning.
WOW! This worked great! I was getting a "CANNOT BOOT KERNEL" and the hard drive was making a clicking sound. I unplugged, and plugged the white plug back in, and I'm watching a movie now!
Thanks. Any ideas what happened, and why this fix worked?
