    I am trying to access the internal webpage on the tivo unit. When i put in the address in the browser address bar, it prompts me for a username and password. I don't recall ever setting one.

    Try this:

    username = tivo "lower case"
    password = your media access key

    A Tivo box has an "internal web-page" that allows you to download content that isn't protected by the network. For example most programs on ABC, NBC, CBS, etc aren't protected, but programs and movies on HBO are. So you reach the page by typing https://(tivo box ip address) and a popup window is displayed asking for a user id and password. The password is the Tivo Media Access Key (Shown on your Tivo online account or on the tivo account page on the box in the settings menu's) Note: You may need to accept the tivo box certificate for the https:// connection. Also adobe flash is required.

    All fascinating, but it doesn't answer the question. ;-)

    Reviving a 14 year old thread has got to be some kind of record?

    It certainly does, unless OP can't draw an obvious inference from the explanation given.

    Okay, to spell it out: The thread title is "Tivo Interanal Webpage- Username, Password". The response was "A Tivo box has an "internal web-page" that..."

    It was just a small joke about an easily overlooked typo, nothing more.

    Oh. That went right by me, since the actual question was posed in the post, where there was no typo.

    Actually, deek_md asked "interanal???" and wizbang_fl quoted that in his response to the question. It was all just lighthearted joking about an easily overlooked typo and really didn't deserve this much attention.
