Hi,

 

We have two Tivos, series 3 and neither of us are technical enough to do any chips / mod changes or software changes.  We are in Helensville and are happy to ship our Tivos and pay for postage back if necessary.
If anyone is willing to do this for us.  Even happy to pay.  Please PM me.

 

thanks

 

Julie

Well i decided to do  a Clear & Delete followed by a Guided Setup, in a hope to fix the tv guide and stop the 30 days since you connected bull.

 

Now I get that i need to connect to www.tvio.co.nz/activate your tivo

 

Shows my service number.

 

 

Has your TiVo been modified with a replacement PROM and software mod?

 

 

 

 

Yes it has been

Hi Julie,

 

If you don't get any responses on here, you can search for TiVo on Trademe and a couple of people offering modding service should come up.

When you go into the guided setup it will ask you if you have activated your tivo

 

Click on the yes option. Did you click on the no option ?

 

 

Cant say I even saw that part. 

 

Will try that again and see if it shows.

 

I would have said yes

It defaults to no so you may have clicked straight through it...

Re did the setup again. did see the question and said yes. 

 

Still the same and wants me to activate.

 

Also noticed that it said it would have the channel guide in 0 days. 

 

Hmmmm

And you applied the software patch/mod to your hard drive for the new mothership without any errors ?

Check that the Dial Code in System Information is 140 (you'll need to wait several minutes after boot before this shows the correct number and you don't need to change this.) If you're connecting to the correct mothership, is it   connecting and progressing? You should not be having troubles with this. Does your TSN show in System Information? If not, a Clear and Delete, and guided setup connecting to the new mothership should go without any drama. 





Tivo upgrades to operate with the new OzTivo EPG, support and service. Over 300 performed here so far. See: www.hillcrest.net.nz

Anyone want a Tivo to practice all this modding stuff on?

 

We have retired ours as we have MySky and I have a TV card in my PC so can't imagine needing the Tivo.

 

Does not have the remote as that is my daughters favourite toy, and nothing could make me deprive an 8 month old her favourite toy :)

 

You will need to pick it up in Pukekohe out of hours, or at Parnell between 6am and 2pm.

 

Comes with wi-fi dongle.

Strange that almost sounds like the software on the Tivo drive hasn't been patched (wont be related to the prom). Did you do the software modification yourself?  If so I would try it again it will tell you if its already patched so no harm running it again.

I would happily take it off your hands for spare parts.
