    hey guys,
    well i managed to screw up my tivo...i guess it was me

    i had not connected to get the new guide for some time and it ran out...

    ok no biggy just connect right?

    well i did that but all my season passes would not show i called tivo and they to do a 'clear program guide info and to do list' option

    so i did sat at that screen that says......'tivo is clearing program guide... etc may take up to one hour'

    so it sat there for about 3 hours...i unplugged it...plugged it back in and it sat there overnight.... still stuck on the same screen so i called tivo and they said my tivo it basically trash now..and i need to exchange it..

    OF COURSE my warrnty is out and they said i need to buy a new one

    does anyone know a fix to this? i am not scared to crack that sucker open and do what i need to..

    please help if you can
