Learning we were losing our Tivos was a sad day. The alternative machines didn't look that great by comparison, the WAF wasn't great and it pained me to have a functioning machine that was essentially likely to end up as landfill.

 

 

 

But there was hope on the horizon. The OZ / NZ tivo community have been working hard at finding a solution. The solution is now out there and it works!

 

 

 

So after all this angst I would like to publicly thank Skolink and Darren for helping me through this process. I don't know a RAM from a motherboard but at least I know what a HDD is. They helped this newbie work through the issues I came up with so that I now have a fully functioning Independence Day version of tivo up and running.

 

 

 

Of course my thanks also go to the generosity of the whole local Tivo community who have worked to make this possible. Such clever people out there giving their time and technical knowledge to the wider community. They have created a process that really is quite simple - fact is if I can upgrade my Tivo anyone can. 

 

 

 

True legends. Thank you all!

Agree 100 %.    I'm getting mine done in about two weeks.    Judging by the numbers doing this TiVo has lost a perfect opportunity to keep TiVo going in this region  with some sort of monthly maintenance fee  plus the addition of new DVRs .

Couldn't agree more.  Mine's 1-2 weeks from being live - again - and based on the responses of other users I can't wait.

I also agree and am very thankful to those men and women who have joined together to allow us to continue using our Tivo model 3's.  As they were already doing this for models 1 and 2 I have understood.

 

I have just had my Tivo reconfigured and is up and running again here at home.

 

I am happy to report that all is working well after having 'told' the tivo the new broadband/wifi key and then reinstalling or resetting the channels to connect to OZ/TIVO.

 

I do have one question though - I have found a lot of the programmes not listed in the Find Programmes department so to speak.  The Big Bang Theory for example, Judge Rinder, 2 Broke Girls are not listed.  Is this just teething problems or ?

 

I may need to start a new thread for this I think.

 

thanks so much to OZ/TIVO once again for keeping us going.

 

I LOVE MY TIVO

I'm pleased you're back up and running. I was able to find all of those programs you listed, searching by title/All programs. You may find that searching by type, e.g. comedy, Arts etc doesn't work reliably as the new guide data may not always contain all of those tags at this stage. Remember, this is a work in progress and it's very early days yet.

Hi Spong, thanks - it's good to be back up and running for sure.

 

Yes I found those programmes today to.  Silly eh.

 

Like you say, I understand, it is a work in progress.  

 

Perhaps I jumped the gun.

Thanks from me as well. Spong supplied the prom and I installed it and applied software upgrade to my hard drive. It's not untill you have to watch The Chase and the news live you appreciate the value of delayed viewing and skipping the adverts using the good old TiVo.
