If the drive you purchased was pre-loaded with the TiVo software you should run Clear And Delete Everything to marry the drive with your DVR. Then you will have to run the guided setup.

Is the ghost DVR one of yours or from somebody else?

Was that drive specifically marketed as having TiVo software already on it or as having come out of a TiVo?


Any chance one of your neighbor's TiVos is piggybacking on your wireless internet access?
