View Full Version : Series2 freezing when networked
01-27-2009, 09:41 AM
I just replaced the hard drive in my series2 with a Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250gb drive because I was having a random restart problem. After baking the new drive with instacake I proceded to do the guided setup. During the guided setup I used the phone line. After getting a software update (right now it is running version 9.3.2a-01-2-140) I started to try to get the network set back up (it was running fine before and I am using an AG0100 tivo wireless g adapter) every time I got to inputing the name of my network the tivo would freeze and I would have to power it down and restart it. After another software update I was able to get the network setup. Now every time I do anything related to the network the tivo freezes and requires a restart. This morning I tried the network again and after pluging in the network adapter the tivo froze up again. At this point I just don't know what else to do.
PS this is a Series 2 TCD140060

Just for fun I put the old 250gb Western Digital HD back in and with software version 9.3.2a-01-2-140 it seems to be running fine on the network.

I put the good hard drive back in and the TIVO froze up again when I plugged in the wireless adapter. I restarted the unit and reconfigured for phone line and then did a KS52 and after a restart I am still having the problem. at this point I don't have any more ideas as to what to do next. Does anyone out there have any ideas?

Well after running the Tivo on the phone line for a few months the Tivo started to freeze up intermitantly and to get it unstuck I would have to unplug it and then restart it. Finaly it would not restat. So I just replaced the power supply and now I can use the Network with either drive. So It looks like I had a failing power supply. Now I am having an S03 error while unpacking the downloaded data (From both phone and network). I have tried all the kickstart codes and switched hard drives. I am now deleting everything. I hope that this will help.

Just to let everyone know, my series 2 is now back up and running smothly and does not seem to have any issues. The clear and delete everything seems to have done the trick. I know that it is stupid (it is only TV) but after having TIVO now for 9 years I find it very hard to scedule my life around when my favorite shows are on. I love being able to watch shows when I have time.
