Advertisements I just received a Philips HDR212 from a friend. I have no manual. I've looked on the internet about this box and it looks like it is a Series 1 and I may be able to use it as a DVR without TIVO service. That is what I would like to try at first. I tried to do the guided setup and had problems. After entering info about my zip code, area code, and TV system (I have Dish) the TIVO made the first phone call. At the connecting screen the system went "preparing to call", "dialing", "connecting", "setting clock", getting account status", "done". Then the downloading prompt was activated and "done". Then Hanging up was activated and "done" Then the Importing prompt was activated and said "preparing data", loading data", and then "1%, 3min". Then the system says "Failed while loading series". I tried several times with similar results. Is the Philips box broken and unusable? Any help is appreciated. If there is another place I should be looking, please let me know. This is my first interaction with the TIVO community and I am a total novice about all of this.
