My TIVO weries 2 has interrupted a baseball game today to power up and give me a cartoon sales display three times now. I t takes about 4 minutes. Very annoying. Never happened before.
What is going on?

Is the "cartoon sales display" the animation of the little TiVo guy with balls rolling around? If so this is a typical animation that is played each time the TiVo boots up.

If it is booting for no apparent reason it may be a sign of a failing hard drive. You can try to run a self repair (this has worked for some folks) and the instructions are here:

If that doesn't do the trick you may want to consider repair or replacement. There is a great deal of information on the TiVo Community Forum regarding these options. The link for that forum is :

Let me know if you have additional questions.
