I tried to install TivoWEB with no luck. Somehow I hosed the system and had to do a restore. I'd rather not do that again.
Maybe there are routines that come with TivoWEB I can use to initiate a recording? Or perhaps some other "outside the box" method?
Thanks for your help, Mark.
Your entire previous post from almost 4 years ago indicates that you have a Series 1 Philips.
If you have lifetime on that, you should check and see if the lifetime sub was purchased before January 21, 2000. If so, it can be transferred one time to another TiVo.
Although since you're running v1.3 of the software and not v3.0, I'm wondering if this thing has ever been subscribed.
