Sorry ignore, quite literally as soon as i pressed enter to start this thread it went into set up
Hmmm i seem to remember when my other Tivo had network problems and i had to revert to dial up for a short period i had the same problem.......................the only thing is i can't remember how i solved itblindlemon said:No prefix, nothing - just plug it into the phone line and it should do its stuff.
Was it previously setup for a network connection ??Just bought a 2nd Tivo off ebay
Well i was coming to that conclusion, ie the cable is the wrong one!6022tivo said:I don't care what people say about cables..
The tivo phone cable is a funny one, do you have your old one from TiVo1?? Did it come with the tivo, huge long black cable?
No because the warranty seal is still intactRichardJH said:Was it previously setup for a network connection ??
Ha ha! That's no guarantee. It's very easy to gently peel it off and re-apply it. My primary tivo still has its seal intact, despite having had a Turbonet card, at least 3 hard drives and a cachecard installed over the years...Tivo_noob said:No because the warranty seal is still intact
Sorry no i don't have SkyAutoman said:If you have a sky box it's telephone cord will work with Tivo.
Any normal laptop modem cable as sole at Staples, Currys, Maplins etc will be suitable for connecting a Tivo to a BT phone socket.Tivo_noob said:Sorry no i don't have Sky
Yeah its in the phone socket, this is really getting on my nerves now as i am running out of things to try and SWMBO is giving me "the look" while the room is a jumble of wires and no TV while i try and sort this other one outozsat said:Make sure the phone cable is in the 'phone socket - and not the comms socket.
Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I've just bought a TiVo from someone on Ebay (can't remember on here if I can go into details, but it's not unmodded - and was cheaper than a new hard drive for the one it replaces) and it's been on for less than an hour, but I was a bit panicky about it giving this message after it alternates with the 'Welcome. Powering Up' screen.Just bought a 2nd Tivo off ebay and went to delete everything almost 2.5 hrs ago and it is stuck on this mesage. i have unplugged at the mains and restarted and it just reverts to this message
It is a bog standard 40g unmodded Tivo
