So, I revived my old Lifetime Series2 540 by swapping out a drive from an unused box. After a 2 hour clear and delete, everything is setup again, BUT the remote address. There are two TiVos upstairs-- different rooms, but still. I have diligently followed the instructions to set the revived TiVo's remote to "2", but the box *keeps* reverting to "0"!! No other remote is being used in the same room-- the doors are even closed to the room during the setup. I tried fresh batteries as well as a different peanut remote. Same result. (I am not trying to use the same remote with the two boxes.)
I one thing I was thinking was an OS bug? The box is running 8.x, I think that is behind, even for a Series2. (I assume an update will arrive in time.) Could there be an old bug lingering there?
I really want to get this sorted as the room with DVR "1" normally has the adjoining door open and I don't want it to interfere with "2".
