Just picked up and installed a new tivo which I am setting up for a family member. But as soon as I switch it on it has a green flashing light, and nothing appears on the screen. I do have 2 tivos myself, and they never had this problem. Anyone know what a green flashing light means?

I have rung telecom broadband/tivo support, and they don't know either, but have said to turn off for 6 hour s to hard reset and try again,and if it is still occurring return to the store. This will be the second one I will have to return after problems shortly after buying, so there DOA rate must be quite high.

Doesn't seem mention the flashing green light. I presume it means a failure of some type.

it holds a few meanings, one is a reboot is required for the software install to finish, another is a major failure has occurred. which is why they suggested unplugging for a hard rest because if it is software it will correct it, if it isn't and it still happens they will replace.

alienwithin: have you tried rebooting it?


Thanks, yes many times, but it isn't booting at all. Turn on, and just a green flashing light, and blank screen. Probably will have to return.
