View Full Version : Zip code and Area code

09-08-2005, 01:01 PM
Please forgive my ignorance. I feel like a child in a $2.00 shop with only $1.95 in my pocket. So close and yet so far. After searching the forums for an answer I still cant complete the Guided Set-up. I have updated the emulator and after the tivo has downloaded appropriate info, tells me that the area code is incorrect and to try another. Emulator is 127::
Zip code 08001 (for chch) Area code 003 (south Island). Any advice would be appreicated.
Regards Gerard.

Thomson Tivo with built in tuner. Source FTA only.

Zip Code = 02113

Area Code = 002

(don't worry about the fact that you live in CHCH or SI).

My tivo is still rejecting the (002) area code after "Setup call". The screen reads "Dial-In Number" "The (002) area code has no dial in numbers. Please try another nearby area code and choose the closest number."
After try all area codes from 000 - 009 and selecting "Done trying area codes" with no success I am calling nee, screaming for some help!
Could this problem be related to the fact that this is a UK model? Or unix based? Possibly something either not turned on or off? Probably a much simpler solution? ............Help.
Regards Gerard.

Please reply with the emulator you are using and all the guided setup settings you make up to that point.
