  1. TiVo Series3 HDTV DVRs
    My series 3 seemed to be in the continual reboot mode. Finding that the most common problem was the hard drive, I replaced the hard drive (didn't format - maybe the issue), and that didn't seem to fix the problem although not all lights are flashing on the front now. I then changed the power...

    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...

    ETA: I probably have box too. This is not for sale, just trying to get it free to someone who can use it. Anyone want/need this? Headed to landfill, otherwise. I can probably find you a power cable for it, but no remote. I upgraded all my TiVos. The 1TB in here was mfstools copied by me...

    I've searched around quite a bit, but so far haven't found anything like the issue I'm seeing. I have 2 Series 3 HD boxes one with a 2TB drive, the other with a 500GB drive. The 2TB unit is having network connectivity issues (error connecting to Tivo service). The other works great. The...

    Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone has some experience with this particular problem and could offer some advice. Our Tivo Series 3 unexpectedly rebooted once, then a month or so later, it did it again. Eventually it did it again and this time it did not fully come back up. If I unplug it and plug...

    Though I have been accessing Netflix on this machine for years, I can no longer do so. When I try to activate it I get a screen that says, "Sorry, this DVR cannot be activated". I first reported this problem to TiVo over a month ago on 8/18/18. They say it is a known problem and that they...

    I recently purchased a FreedomPop Supernova 655 hotspot to replace my soon-to-stop dialup connection on my Series 3 HD. For some reason my Tivo Wireless N adapter will not connect to the hotspot (connection failed message). It sees the hotspot fine, but connection fails. My passphrase is correct...

    Does anyone know the approximate size of the typical program guide on the Series 3? I'm one of the "edge" rural users that's losing the dialup connection and don't have wifi. I'm considering using my Mac as a router and connecting to my S3 via a a wireless N (untested), or purchasing a...

    Wondering if anyone can help me out. I have a Series 3 TiVo HD that I have used WinMFS on to add an external eSATA 1TB hard drive (B Drive) but I am now looking to consolidate to a larger internal 2TB disk so I don't lose my recordings from both disks. I upgraded the internal disk to a 1TB via...

    I'm new to the Tivo Community, but I've been a Tivo owner since 2000. I'm on my second Tivo and I need community help. My hard drive is fried, can someone PM an image for the HD (not sure if that matters) series 3 model? I have WinMFS and DvrBARS. I couldn't get WinMFS to recognize my new...

    I'd like to connect both devices to one TV. Each have their own cable card and I'd record separately on each. Has anyone ever done this?

  16. TiVo Series3 HDTV DVRs
    Hello, here's my tale of woe. The box is a Tivo S3 (TCD648250B) which suffered from the bad capacitor problem. It was powered off for a few months until I had time to get the new capacitors and replace the bulging ones. After replacing the capacitors, the box seemed to be fine, but that...

    Somehow my wife pushed some buttons on remote for the Tivo HD (series 3), now all the programs in Kidzone are now listed alphabetically instead of by dates. The programs outside of Kidzone are listed properly by dates. I also have another Tivo HD XL (series 3), and the programs in the Kidzone...

    My series 3 Tivo is working fine except that the main menu does not have "Video on Demand". It does have: "Now Playing List", "Watch Live TV", "Find Programs", "Netflix", "Music Photos & Showcases", and "Messages and Settings" in that order. It is hardwired to a 50Mbps ethernet. Its software...
