Video on Demand Dead - after HDD Upgrade

Hi...

I have two original Tivo S3's. The first one's HDD died two years ago; I upgraded it with a WeaKnees kit.

The second one's HDD died recently, so I did the same thing. But now, on the one I upgraded today, I have no 'Video on Demand.' When I click that line on Tivo Central, the screen changes, then comes right back to Tivo Central.

Same thing happens if I go into the 'Now Playing List' and choose Netflix...screen changes, then returns without actually going to Netflix.

Everything else is working fine. I can transfer programs from the other S3, play back shows, etc.

On my other S3, connected to the same network, sitting side-by-side with the one having problems, it's fine. Shows the whole VOD page, with my options like Amazon, Netflix, etc.

Both are connected with CAT5 ethernet...not wifi.

Is there a setting I missed?

Thanks

Do you need to go to tivo.com and enable something?

It works now.

Apparently it required some 'middle of the night update,' and when I got up this morning, it worked.

Thanks for the reply!

When I recovered a TiVo hard drive recently I found most features except playback didn't work properly until the first indexing completed, which took multiple hours, probably 4-6 hours, but I've seen it take 12+
