Rich, I finally got my Tivo to go into Kickstart mode! I just had to hold the pause key for about 2 minutes and it worked. I tried all the kickstarts and nothing really seemed to help. I finally deleted everything...had to re-enter all the info, etc...and it seems to be working alright now. I'm testing it for awhile. Anyway, didn't I read a post that Tivo support is pretty good about fixing or replacing your Lifetime Service Tivo's without losing your lifetime subscription? If my Tivo screws up again, I might concider the repair or replacement. Thanks for your help!
