    Hey All -

    The Elite and the N Adapter came today - first issue - I can't connect to my network.

    First Question:

    Can the N Adapter connect to a G Router?? I have an N Adapter on my XBox360 - and that works like a champ. After reading the directions - it seems to say that I need a 2nd N Adapter. . . REALLY??

    If the answer to the above question is "yes", can some kind soul point me to the "Dummies Guide"?

    TIA!!

    You need to connect the adapter to your PC and setup your network settings/security before it will connect your Tivo to the network.

    N is backwards compatible with G.

    Thanks Guys that just goes to prove R.I.F. LOL

    Next question - put in my zip code - and channel lineup. No Problem. It then asked for premium channels (I have them all). It then said to hit "select" to pick channels - but - they were all already checked. So - I just hit the right arrow. Was I correct - and their instructions completely counter-intuitive, or what?

    Thanks again!!

    You can go back and edit which channels you receive at any point. This will not affect anything except it will give you a cleaner guide and autorecord wishlists will work if you select all the correct channels you receive.

    Cool - Thanks!!

    Bedtime - 1 more question - Amazon VOD says that the DVR has to be activated. I call TIVo - and - it is activated - they say that it needs a CableCard??? I'll be getting a cablecard within the next couple days - and already got Pandora and Rhapsody - but - that didn't sound right - is it?

    Thanks again!!

    Tivo CS thinks you are referring to the Cable's OnDemand. You can try and login to Amazon and have it re-link to your Tivo.com account.

    Amazon just hasn't updated that list. It does work on Elites. http://amazon.com/gp/video/ontv/tivo to link your TiVo and Amazon accounts, set your purchase pin, etc.
