This morning when I turned my TV on, the tivo was frozen and I couldn't do anything. I pulled the plug to reboot it and now it can't get past the "Tivo is powering up" screen. Did the hard drive die?

Most likely it did. Do you have a backup of the image?

Nope I don't have a backup. I picked up a R15 right now to get me by. I thought I would see how I like that receiver and the decide if I want to get a new hard drive for my tivo.

I have a Hughes DVR-80 and an RCA DVR-40, and I've upgraded both with new larger hard drives. At the time of the upgrade, I also made a backup of the images just in case one of the new drives fails. It's not that hard to do.
