When trying to record or setup a season pass the following error is received :

'Conflict DoRecordShowing
Propose Explicit Selection returned err errDbNotFound'

We have done a full system reset and deleted everything. Cust serviced advised re-booting.

Can anyone help?

It looks to my, admittedly, un-trained eye like some sort of Database error. From what I can remember of previous posts on the subject, the normal fix for these is quite long-winded I'm sorry to say. You should re-run Guided Setup with a *different* postcode and then again with your usual postcode. I think :)

I'm sure someone with more extensive knowledge will be along shortly to tell me exactly how wrong I am ;):D

I had this recently and in the end resorted to a re-image from backup when the nth C&DE had not completed after 48 hrs.

The reimaged system ran for around 2 days before then getting stuck in an endless reboot cycle. I tried running the maxtor disk diags and found loads of hard errors on the disk.

Try running powermax on your hard disks and see if you are getting the same thing.

I have now tried installing my brothers original master drive (he upgraded) on our box and this would not even get past the grey boot cycle screens.
Doe this mean our h/drive is ok, as it fully reloads with full tv guide, just no recording capabilty.....a problem with software???

rodr.... followed thread ...... tried 53 then 58.... finally 57.
first 2 reloaded software.... 57... gave green [email protected] error... don't switch off for 24 hrs).... checked every 10 mins ... took about 30/40 mins....
worked perfect afterwards.... not been without tivo for 5 years or so.... cant live without... thanks again everyone whohelped... will return favour...


Maybe i am being to simplistic...but having searched thread after thread... looking for cure, I think this cure might sort a lot more than just my fault... ie lot of hard drive faults.... doesn't take long ....If u are going to buy hard drive this is certainly worth doing....in fact seems to me any sort of software fault.....

Think this should be first point of call on tivo forum... or is it not allowed..????

You can do a MFS check, i.e. force a green screen without your tivo being networked.

See instructions pinched from another page below (Can't find link, just found in my docs)

While booting the power light will change from green to yellow as the line 'checkpanic' in the rc.sysinit gets executed. This happens a few seconds before the screen changes from the startup image to "almost there" and it's your cue to hold down a button (use pause) on the remote to trigger a panic. When the record light changes yellow, key in one of the following sequences:

0 - emergency call to tivo, touchtone dialing
1 - emergency call to tivo, pulse dialing
9 - emergency call to tivo, touchtone w/ 9 prefix
-- I suggest not doing any of these unless explicitly instructed

52 - emergency reinstall
-- this will act like you've received new software but will reinstall the existing software on the alternate root partition and boot it, particularly useful so you don't have to go trolling for backup images when your hacks fail.

56 - software install


57 - mfs check
58 - perform mfs cleanup
-- both of these will cause the green screen and various mfs checks



sorry so long but I think this seems that important.


would love to here your comments

Anyway i am working thanks to tivo community

BIG THANKS
