Advertisements I've got a Series 3 Tivo that I need to kickstart. The problem is that the normal lights and text readout (and corresponding amber light) have not worked for years. I know that the Kickstart procedure requires you to release the Pause button after the amber light comes on. When I reset the Tivo, I do get the four lights in a square (red red blue orange). They then go out, and I never get lights again. So, what I need to know is: How many seconds does it take for the amber light to come on after the four lights go out? Another piece of data that would help would be: how many seconds, total, is it from powering the Tivo up until you get the amber light? Thanks much!
