    I phoned TiVo customer services, or SKY as some people call them, lol, at around 3pm this afternoon. THe guy said it could take up to 48 hours, but I was just wondering how long it actually normally takes to activate, im just paying monthly for now.

    I have had 2 tivos before, but cant for the life of me remember how long the activation took. I jst wanna set all my season passes and stuff up.

    Thanks guys

    Happy to oblige :D I'd say at least a day. I wouldn't bother with a daily call that often :)

    i am just an impatient person, i would rather at least try to do stuff by doing a daily call that often

    anyway it has downloaded the program data now, im very happy.

    thankyou, i missed tivo so so much,

    ahhhh... wishlists, season passes that (generally) work, a tv guide that i can view without having to stop watching whats currently on, remote scheduling via the inter net, the joys of endpad, tivoweb and hackman, tivo suggestions (once it learns what i like, lol) i know some people dont like/use this feature but i really like it.

    its good to be back, I have to tell myself that I am not allowed to sell this one, no matter how desperate for money I am lol, well unless they ever bring out a new model

    all i need now is a new series 3 glo remote, cachecard + ram, and a lifetime sub and i will be set
