ive been going through various TIVO screens (settings / information etc) to try & find some information.




and now for the last 15 to 20 minutes, it just says "Please wait."  & no buttons do anything - its just waiting waiting... - ive pressed the reset button on thetop of the controller)




Without turning it off (I have a disability & cant go rummaging round the back), is there anything i can do - or just wait, & hope something happens...

If it's going to a new owner, you should also remove it from your MyTivo account so that the new owner can activate it on their account.

I think you hold the button on the front or something

Once they turn off the service soon, you won't be able to . I recall there was a thread on here recently about someone having a problem, so not sure if the activation server is working properly or not.
