    This was the final straw on my original 40gb disk, after a bit of stuttering I was getting the same message even after a couple of goes of starting from scratch again. Might have been something fixable but I never succeeded.

    New hard drive and all was well again

    Try, try, try again. This normally sorts itself out after a few goes.

    If that fails, redo Guided setup for analogue (aerial) only and a different postcode, then repeat with your correct setup and your postcode and try again.

    Mine had this problem just a couple of days ago. A simple restart of the recorder sorted it.

    I have had this error since the week I got my Foxsat HDR
    I think Tivo is jealous ;-)

    I have tried multiple power-offs and guided setup to aerial, back to Freesat (FSFS), changed post codes, but I still get this error when I come back to FSFS and the correct post code (after about 4 hours of processing data).

    Tivo is now powered down unless I want to watch an old recording :-(
    (I'm only missing Five US & CNN on Freesat)

    Angus,...
    One of my Tivos did this for a few days after I had it switched off for a month (blame sky HD).

    I restarted a few times and after a few days all was well (it got further through daily call every day).

    I guess it doesn't like processing loads of new data.
    I'll turn it back on and leave it for a few days - but I'm getting more fussy with power consumption worries these days (as are many of us).
    I know it's only about 80W for Tivo + STB... but it all adds up.
    The HDR is great at <1W on standby.

    As others have said, "keep trying".

    I had the same problem the other month after replacing a failed drive.

    There was another thread on this forum about deleting a log file or something, which then makes the download work first time.

    I switched my box on after a six-week power off and got the same error message several times. It was trying to get a successful call two or three times a day.

    Decided to do a Clear Program Data and To-do List.

    Thought I'd copy down my wishlists etc. down first. Blooming thing would not let me. No TiVo srevice :mad:

    Will report back after the reset.

    Fixed.

    It performed the two data downloads as if it were a virgin (with a small 'v') box.

    Now to rebuild my Wishlists etc.............:eek:
