I understand all that. I'm having problems with 2 of my series 2 tivo's and activated my S1. I just looked and the S1 has made 2 successful daily calls in a row now. I'll keep watching it until I can get 1 of the 2 S2's working again. I'm taking the power supply to a TV repair man on tues. The S1 is easier to hack than the S2 and I got sort of a soft spot for it because it is so old and still works. I'm gonna hack it and put large drives in it like the one I had before it. Call it a project I started and never finished. I now want to finish it.
