Just bought a used DVR-80 that was upgraded (its series2 ver. 4.0.xxxb with 133 hrs). I get an ip address on the box, verified the drop was working with my laptop, but it hangs on the negotiating step of the connect to Tivo.

Any thoughts...

I was a Tivo/Directv user a few years ago, and got rid of Dtv and now am back.

I am out of the game so I lost track of software versions and the Dtv tivo world.

Thanks.

Thanks, I will check into and probably do what you suggest about Zipper and Instacake. I am guessing after I do this, there is no need to phone home, and I see the script actually fools the Tivo to not phone home.

The guide data comes via the sat then I assume (Like i said its been a while since I have been in the Directv world).

Thanks for the help.
