Vizio VBR231 Blu-ray Player Failed

Just after installing the TiVo, my Vizio VBR Blu-ray play failed. I did knock the HDMI connector out of the Vizio while installing. After reinstalling the HDMI connector, the Blu-ray would not work. It would show the Vizio logo after powering on and then the screen would go blank and the TV indicated that it had lost the HDMI signal.

After some testing to verify that the HDMI cable was working OK, Vizio agreed to send me another VBR231 as a warranty  replacement. I have sent them the broken player and am now waiting for the new one.

This will be my third VBR231. The first one was an out-of-box failure. The second one failed after less than six months of use. This does not bode well for this product.
