    Thank you for talking down to me >.> As I mentioned to you in another thread, if you have an issue with me please address it to me in a private message and not on the forum. Just because I'm new on the forum does not mean I do not have credible information to share, and years of experience in my field. :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure what experience or field you're speaking about but it's clearly not with TiVo or participating in forums. That's not a bad thing everyone here was new once. However this is a public forum. If you post publicly it's almost a given that responses to your posts will be public as well…kind of goes with the territory and how these things work.

    Again with the talking down, do you not have tact? I don't want this to become a hassle for me. I have better things to do. :p Why dont we just ignore each other's posts and carry on with our lives. :)

    Rich is right. And Rich is being very nice, tactful, and diplomatic in addressing you.

    Mike is new. Mike acts a bit like the drunk idiots I see walking back and forth to their cars at 2am. Mike is young (ETA: This is an assumption) and my guess is he's rude and disrespectful.

    Mike will learn lessons in life, Rich already has. Respect your elders, son.

    And no, you don't have anything better to do. How would you be so busy here if you did?

    * PS: Now THAT was talking down, son.

    Rich, you're great. Not only do you provide great advice on keeping our TiVo's working, but you school the newbies on forum etiquette. Awesome! It's such a pleasure to participate in the forum with you!

    lol, love it!:up:

    I do, but I seem to have extra time to hang out here too; :p
    If you think that was a talking down to perhaps you should check the definition, sir. I respect your opinion on this matter, although it doesn't concern you, and its just that, a bias opinion about your friend and not fact. Anyway your right, I'm a bit new to the forum, thats fine, but although I'm younger then the majority of you doesn't mean that I'm the pain in the neck who drives down the street at 2am with the noisy sportscars. I think we all just got off on the wrong foot and I'd like to start over. :)
    I respect your opinion, although I disagree with it. :)

    I've been a chatroom and forum moderator for a rather long time, and it doesn't bother me that some people disagree with me. I know that I'm better, and thats all that matters. As I said before I consider this matter closed, and I feel this is hardly the time nor place to discuss it.:cool:

    Ugh. Not unexpected I supposed but sorry to hear that. Well…at least you know how to resolve it. Some folks just live with it and plan on power cycling their TiVo's whenever an update is pushed out (3 or 4 times a year)…seems reasonable unless you happen to be on vacation at the time or whatever. Your call of course.

    But hey, thanks very much for giving it a try. That was going above and beyond and it's much appreciated! :up:

    Where did you get your drive with the Aug. 24 date?

    Does anyone else know who is shipping WD10EVDS drives with dates that don't have to run wdidle?

    When using wdidle3 with WD10EVDS I tried setting to 300 but says 255 is max, should I do 255 or just disable it?

    EDIT: I left it at 255 and no reboot problem, so I am going to leave it.

    Good info. :up: I'd just disable it, but IIRC more recently manufactured drives only allowed the timeout to be extended for some reason.

    In any case, glad to hear things are good and enjoy!

    I'll leave it for now, and see if I see any problems, thanks for your help and anyone else that contributed to this thread. Overall I'd say it was a very easy upgrade process (my first Tivo upgrade). Now shows won't be deleted when I go on my 2 week vacation! YAY :D

    Absolutely leave it. I just meant to say that if I had the option I would probably disable it…not meaning that you should go back in and do anything. If it booted up from a soft reboot once there's zero reason to believe that it will be any different in the future. Apologies for the confusion and enjoy…your "new" TiVo and your vacation!
