How to fix S03 error.

There are too many long threads about this. I spent a week dealing with my 2 and this is what I learned. There are a few ways to fix a S03 error. But the best way is:

Method 1

Step 1 - Unplug tuning adapter.
Step 2 - Put down remote and come back tomorrow.
Step 3 - Pick up remote, manual connect.
Step 4 - wait hours till it is done successfully.
Step 5 - Plug in tuning adapter.

Method 2
delete stuff-reset stuff-clear stuff-reimage stuff- lose shows- get really angry.

Try method 1 first before moving on to method 2. I used method 1 on 1 of my machines and method 2 on the other, but I tried method 2 first.

Method 3

Move to another area that doesn't use tuning adapters.

Method 4
Throw hands up in air, toss TiVo at wall and cuss like a sailor.
