I bought a used HD Tivo from a neighbor. I am trying to hook it up tonight and I tried to run a clear and delete everything but it keeps asking me for the parental controls password. I have tried 1234 and 0000 with no luck.

I can give the guy a call tomorrow but I was wondering if the password is stored on the access card or on the Tivo.

When I call to activate the receiver DirecTV will probably make me get a new access card. If the password is stored on the card that will fix my problem.

If it is stored on the Tivo how do I get around not knowing it?

I guess I could always reimage the drive...
