Just PM'ed you.
Since you have to take the power supply out anyway*, take it with you to the meetup and get him to help you pick out all the caps across the 5V and 12V output lines, i.e., connected directly between one of those and ground, and replace them all now and be done with it. Probably a max of 4, 2 per rail.
*In addition to the obvious screws holding it down, there's one you take out from the outside back panel that goes into the AC jack, and it needs a smaller Torx bit, like an 8 or 9.
Thanks, I tried to PM you back, but alas my post count is not enough. Hey look, here's one more
Thanks for the pointer on removing it. Yeah I may want to do those others as well. Searching really showed that the one that failed for me is the common one, but wouldn't hurt to do while in there. I'll see what else he has. Thanks again.
I included my email address so you didn't have to PM me back to get in touch.
Got an email back from the guy, he's waitin' to hear from you.
Thanks, we're in touch now. Appreciate the contact.
My tuning adaptor has been unpluged for 6 hours and gc file is still set to friday june 8 9:45 am. I dont want restart it. I guess its my fault since i have not used my tivo in a long time.
This will be an interesting experiment. Let's see how long it takes to update.
The gc: updated at sunday june 24 5:50 pm guess i need a timer.
But i might stop using it soon.
As GC usually completes every other day; I've seen it take up to 3 days to complete, with the t/a on a 3 hour daily time out(power off.)
Happy that you are having success with the Ceton card..
The problems with the TiVo XL4 seem to be subsiding, so I'll likely get one soon.
ceton works fine does the tivo xl4 have ota tuners? i wont buy a tivo without ota tuners
Yes, I know you need OTA. I see your posts on AVS Forum.
And I'm happy with my Ceton also.
Edit: My bad. I guess it's another thread on TCF where you are talking about meTV. But I still see you on AVS.
Im putting a 3 tb in my computer just for recording shows with ceton. I hope 6 tuners a 3 tb is enough to record the summer olypics.
I think this will be my last week of tivo hd in the living room. But the second tivo hd will still be used.
I'm in a similar pickle, I have a tivo hd that i upgraded the drive on. i started getting the s03, i have a cable card and a tuning adapter. I read to try the guided setup, now i'm in the loop (because i failed to read that it can cause these issues). I have a tcd652160.
I'm currently doing a dd_rescue copy of my drive, but I doubt that's going to fix the guided setup loop problem right? Is the root problem the tuning adapter? Also, if you pull the cable card out and then complete guided setup, will i have to have a cable company tech guy come set up the cable card again?
What do you mean restore the image? I've got mfslive, i've moded several tivo's but i can't find on the forum what i'm suppose to do to "restore the image". I'm fine with remaking all my season passes, i just don't want to lose all my shows. Will "restoring the image" make me lose my shows, or cable card settings?
And that's where I posted an answer to you.
I have two Series 3 HD TiVo's and one has spontaneously started having this guide data problem, and unplugging the SVA for four hours today fixed it. Thanks to the folks that figured out the workaround.
Now how do we get TiVo to correct the issue? And what is the underlying cause? The two Tivo's I have are identical and both have the 1TB "My DVR Expander" added to them.
Has anybody had an s03 error, and then unplugged the tuning adapter for 4 hours, and get a successful guide download/load, or have all of you guys tried the 4 hour tuning adapter off method BEFORE getting an s03 error?
None of the above.
Found a way to solve S03 (there are other methods listed in the thread), then got a lamp timer to prevent it from happening again.
Most people are not going to do the lamp timer thing unless they know they have to. It doesn't affect everybody.
