    I have a series 2 DVR Pioneer. The remote (see below) says HUMAX. Suddenly it stopped working. The red light would flash but none of the controls affected the TiVo. Even the TV power button stopped working. I put in fresh batteries, but it still doesn't work. The red-light flashes dimly...

    Hello everyone! I recently extracted some TY files from my TiVo Series 2 since it was stuck in KidZone and was wondering if there was a way to remove the DRM protection that prevents me from encoding or watching them. Hope for answers! Also should note that the TiVo in question doesn't like to...

    I appear to have accidentally killed my Series 2 Tivo and I'm trying to determine whether its worth trying to repair it or not. I believe I have replaced the power supply on another unit in the past, so I think I can handle it technically. I'll be upfront and say due to extreme financial...

    I have a special project that requires me to manual record just some local SD and cable access channels (3-4 times/month) in 6hr blocks. I was looking to possibly get two lifetime series 2 TiVos on ebay. Would then hook up one of Comcast's Flex boxes and/or a Roku (w/ HD downcoverter) to its...

    So I have about 8 TiVo series 2's that I have used as instant replay stations at my gym. They used to be very easy to set up as "Cable only" boxes and then I just plug a CCTV camera into it and then easily play, rewind, slow motion, and then just keep it on a delay. A few of my systems have...

    So as you know, Series 1-3 (and formerly Series 4) TiVos use MPEG-2 videos for the background UI and startup videos. I want to know if anyone knows the best way to extract those from the MFS partition, so that a "clean" rip of them can be made? The graphics from the user interface would be fun...

    I have 2 Series 2 units with lifetime on them. Located in Syracuse NY. Anyone want them for parts or to try to move the lifetime sub? Pick them up and they are yours. Heading to recycling next week.

    Well, I'm stumped. I upgraded my Series 2 TiVo Toshiba RS-TX20 to a 1 TB drive and the only way I get it to boot up is by disconnecting the power from the DVD ROM drive. Upgraded drive: Western Digital Purple 1TB WD10PURZ. IDE to SATA card: HDE 2 Pack IDE/EIDE/PATA Computer to SATA Hard Drive...

    I have an old TiVo Series 2 unit that has never been set up and, it appears, will only allow set up over phone line. Is there a way to change this to network set up mode or to download a more current version so that the network set up option shows as an option? Any help is appreciated.

    I currently have 2 lifetime roamios. They aren’t my main source of tv watching these days. Instead, they use cable cards and I occasionally just use them to manually record 6hr blocks of xfinity local access channels. I transfer the recordings to a networked PC using pyTivo. I then have the .mp4...

    I have an original remote for a Tivo Series 2 hooked up to my PVR. I love the feel and how the remote works but can not get it to pair with our Sony Ht-S100F soundbar. As i can not access the original Tivo to get the remote codes I am relying upon codes found on the internet. I am basing my...

    Hello Tivo community, I've been on this site for the past couple of months trying to figure out how I can use a Tivo Series 2 to use during my volleyball practices. This past week I bought a brand new Tivo Series 2, model TCD24004A. My goal is to connect the camcorder's Yellow-Red-White cables...

    I purchased a Series 2 with a Lifetime subscription on eBay a while back for my in-laws. Turns out they went with Xfinity digital instead of the basic cable they were getting. Before I put it on eBay to sell, is anyone interested in this piece of history with a Lifetime subscription?

    I recently replaced a series 2 with a bolt.I have another series 2 as well. the series 2 can see the bolt (although I'm not certain it can transfer files), but the bolt can't see the series 2. Or perhaps I'm not looking in the right place. I'm in the "My Shows" then "Devices". It says there are...

    I did several searches and found somewhat related topics, but didn't see anything that told me what I could/should do, so apologies if this has already been covered, either I didn't find it, or I didn't understand that I found the answer. Just finished a big 1,400 mile move, including a new...

    Hello, TiVo fans - I have a TiVo Series 2 that I activated with Lifetime service back in 2005. Over the years since then I have purchased other TiVo boxes (currently a Roamio, a Premier XL, and several Minis, all with lifetime) and I stopped using this one on a regular basis because it...

    I have both Tivo Desktop Plus and KMTTG installed on my PC to download Tivo programs to my PC (I have a Series 2, if that makes any difference). I often have problems getting Desktop Plus to load up and work (the last version I received was 2.8.2), so I installed KMTTG as a backup for when the...

    My cable company (Cox) just stopped supporting my old cable boxes, so they sent me two new cable boxes. Got everything set up okay except for one big problem: when I go to change the channel changing menu, and it prompts me for the brands of cable boxes, this new brand of cable box isn't...

    Hi all, Hoping someone can lead me down the right path. I have a lifetime Series 2 540040 with a dead hard drive. I have restored the image provided by this forum to a working 80 GB hard drive using WinMFS. The drive will boot right into guided setup and gives me no information for any zip...
