    I've been getting a message for the last week telling me Tivo needs to connect to get program info. I have two days left before it runs out. Everyday I check the network connection and it shows a successful connection. I then force it to connect and it does.

    I know the Tivo is connecting since I get no errors and I'm able to transfer shows between this Tivo and other Tivos and my computer. The Tivo is hardwired to network.

    What should I try next.

    Thanks, Martin

    This sometimes means that TiVo changed the name of your channel lineup. Try rerunning Guided Setup (it won't take as long as the first time you did it) and reselecting your lineup.
