Heh.  I've had my Tivo go belly-up quite a few times.  When the original
hard drive started failing, it would occasionally green-screen.  Then
one day it just out-and-out died. ;)

And short of switching into geek mode, there was *NOTHING* I could do.

(It goes without saying that I went into geek mode and pulled the hard
drive, replacing the original 30GB model with a 120GB model that's still
in there today, 2 years later.)
