How do you get out of it? How long do you wait? Have you checked the network status?
oops it didnt get stuck at preparing to connect like i thoughtHow do you get out of it? How long do you wait? Have you checked the network status?
I just replaced the hard drive. and used a image from my other tivo hdWhat kind of connection do you have - wired or wireless? If wired, you might try replacing the cable. In either case, you might try restarting your router and any other switches between the TiVo and the router switch.
I would suggest a hard restart (power off for a bit and back on) but I don't know what the result will be if you interrupt guided setup. You should probably call TiVo support before you do that. It is definitely something to consider if all else fails.
they were both 652 160 tivos it seems to be working. but the mfs file i used was 3 years old and the tuning adapter doesnt seem to work with it. and the bluetooth remote does not work. I think its software 9.1The two drives were the same size?
its working and the dvr expander is working to. And the cable cards are work.Don't think it would actually hurt it but it wouldn't work right. Since the two drives were the same size and the two TiVos were the same model, there should be no problem. Hopefully it will work OK after the update completes.
