    Ok, before everyone laughs, I had one of the first Tivo's ever produced. The company I worked for at the time was the official distributor for Philips product to the store front chain stores. I've enjoyed multiple Tivo's ever since.

    I have a Philips Tivo 112 (14 hour). My evil stepson decided to put a password on the particular unit before he moved out of the house. In the mean time, my 4 year old son uses the Tivo to watch and record Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street, etc.

    How can I reset the machine? I've tried everything. Both Philips and Tivo can not seem to help. There is nothing in the manual regarding a "hard" reset. Even a "soft" menu driven reset now requires this password.

    Any ideas?

    Assuming you are talking about "Parental Control" password, you should be able to call TiVo and have them reset the password.
