Same problem here

I have a Series 1 with lifetime subscription. Unplugged it a couple of weeks ago to clean underneath. Now it no longer will make a successful call. Service Unavailable. Since so many people with Series 1's are having the issue, I think it's a Tivo problem. If they don't have a fix and won't apply the subscription to a new Tivo, then it's time to get a lawyer.

Lawyer? Really? Good luck with that.

Having said that, I suspect that if you ask them nicely, they might actually be offered something better than nothing.

Another Series 1 download update failure

Intermittent successful update over phone.

This started happening in December. Last successful update was Jan 8. I always have to manually initiate since I have no phone jack nearby.

Test calls are successful but like many others it's very hit or miss to successfully complete download.

This can't be coincidence with so many different S1 people experiencing similar problem.

I know this is an old issue. Series 1 seems to have problem if it does not connect for a long time. If you clear and delete everything except the program data that usually fixes things.

You can also try leaving it powered up but disconnecting the phone line for a couple of days to allow it time to do a full garbage collection. If it hasn't connected in a long time, it's got a lot of work to do from scratch to delete two weeks worth of data before it can call in.
