Question about Tivo Televison & Video
DVD is stuck in TIVO.
Most DVD products have a small hole near the tray on the device itself. Take a paper clip and bend it so you can put one end in this hole. Push the paper clip straight into this hole gently.... the tray should slide open.

After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!

If you are pulling them from an S2 Nero Vision will convert them automatically from the .TIVO file to a DVD player readable DVD. Works gread and been doing it for years.

I just had the same problem with mine and found another post that at least fixed mine.
I had a DVD in the unit as it was restarting. I took a flathead screwdriver and opened up the DVD slot by inserting at the top right corner and opening the door. On the inside, at the bottom right, is a button that ejects the DVD player (the eject button on the outside won't work while it's booting up). I ejected the DVD that was in it, unplugged the unit for 30 seconds, and then it rebooted just fine.
Hope it works out for you too...
