Hello. i'm downloading a movie now through Tivo - from Quickflix NZ.


Today is 24th March.




the movie is still being downloaded, but the blue Icon is flashing, &


 a message says "could be deleted anytime between now and 19/2 1:07 a.m."


How can it be deleted in the past ? i do have space on my Tivo 3.




Ps - can we get more recent tivo's in NZ ?  as far as i am aware the Aussie supplier is no longer selling any more in NZ or Aus.

I have given up on Quickflix and TiVo .  Cases like this and paid movies not downloading (blue LED comes on for a couple of minutes and then goes off with nothing in the play list).   In the unlikely case I need something from Quickflix I use the Android app and Chromecast..

I don't use Quickflix at all so can't comment on that but unfortunately newer TiVo models are not available at this end of the world.


It's a massive shame as you'll already know they're an excellent device and if you check out the models currently available in the US you will get depressed.  And to answer your next question, no you can't import one to use as the software on our TiVo's is specifically programmed for the AU/NZ broadcast TV market which is very different to the rest of the world.
