For all those that have been asking for it (and with moderator approval - thanks) here is a new topic where those who can provide the upgrade services can post information here.

 

Please keep it brief, and keep it on topic.

 

 

 

I'll kick the ball off :-

 

In the Waikato area, Tivo Eprom update, software update and hard drive upgrades.

 

PM me for prices.

 

Greg

Folks, removed last post. It is not a spam pit. If you genuinely offer an option for TiVo then ok, but it is not for advertising your general electronics repair services.

Hi, we would love to have our Tivo working again properly... seems like there might be a way to do this judging from posts although we are in Dunedin... can you help/advise what/if this is possible for a reasonable charge?
Thanks so much for any advise
Katrina :)

Service update:

I will be pausing my services from 5pm 22nd December, this will be the last day to pick up any TiVos from me if you want yours over Christmas. This makes 20th December the last day that TiVos can be dropped off.

Resumption of service will be early in the New Year and will be announced nearer the time.

I have capacity to take on 20 more TiVos by then, but this capacity will linearly diminish as each day passes so please get in touch early if you want yours done before Christmas.

Same applies to me - anyone waiting to pickup their Tivos must do so by the 22nd after that then it wont be till the 8th of Jan.

 

I can also offer a Tivo exchange service for anyone who wants a modified Tivo and has an unmodified one but isnt worried about loosing recordings or switching units - I have purchased two units recently that are serviced and chipped ready to go this way you only require one visit.

I'll be available for Tivo upgrades all the way through except for the statutory holidays.

 

Currently I'm able to give a 3-4 day turnaround, and I'm well stocked with PROMS, sockets, 1TB and 2TB hard disks. I'm still seeing a steady flow of Tivos with many people telling friends and family how successful this project has been.

Many thanx Greg for the upgrade.  Great job.  Nice to have the EPG back.  Now I can put the old Dish unit back in it's box.
