    Test venue?


    As some will know, I've been having huge difficulty restarting a TiVo despite considerable expert help on the "Nz Tivo!!" thread. I've even bought a working second hand TiVo from TradeMe and that is experiencing identical problems so it looks like it may be a network issue. Have tried at a friend's house but failed there as well so starting to run out of ideas and as anyone who accesses this site will know, life without TiVo is hardly worth living.

    Petestrash has now suggested it's time to test my TiVo at someone's place who already has a working TiVo. Unfortunately I live in Tairua in the Coromandel and there's no-one I know around here that has a TiVo. I'll be visiting Auckland in the next couple of weeks (totally flexible as to date) and am hoping some kind soul can offer to let me bring my TiVo in to se if I can connect from their place.

    Thanks in expectation

    Just a reminder David,

    When you to find someone to test it with, use a fresh install from the CD and set it to DHCP so it works with most networks.

    Please search this forum and our Website for your TiVo questions before starting a new thread. Thanks!

    I suggest that you run the tests advised for the first TiVo on the new TiVo and look for similarities and differences. Is it behaving identically? Can you somehow try your old ISP again?
