I had a screen that said all that stuff, then it went off, and i am just waiting. The front of the unit says ready set Tivo, but no response from the remote or anything. I guess i just need to be patient. LIke i tell my son "Patience Grasshopper" I never got this far before BTW. I did not expand the drive, and i disabled the timer setting on HD. Seems different for sure. Thanks for all your help. Maybe i can return the favor someday.....if it works.
