How long does it take a new Tivo to figure out its "Activated" ?

    Seems like its taking forever for my new Tivo to Activate itself...

    Of course there are two episodes of Criminal Minds I need to tape tonight...

    If you force a connection to the TiVo Service, it should update pretty shortly assuming it is already activated.

    Typically on its next connection, after the guided setup connections are done.

    You could force about 4 Tivo connections, then it will get a software update, reboot to start its software. After that 1 more for the guide data for the upcoming weeks.

    I swear when I transferred my Lifetime to my new premiere it showed as activated right away. It asks you if you have a activated service in guided setup.

    With all my TiVos I always bought lifetime then did guided setup.
