    I’m a little unclear about what you’re asking for. Are you wanting:

    1. Some way to use an unmoderated TiVo in Australia or New Zealand?

    2. Help with a TiVo outside of Australia or New Zealand?

    3. Help to get a TiVo running for use in Australia or New Zealand that’s stuck in Guided Setup?

    4. Something else?

    Yes to #2

    I do not live in Australia or New Zealand, we don't have TiVo service here.
    I got 2 S3 that i brought from USA with me.

    help I seek about:

    A way to modify only software on HD
    Load guide data via FTP or any other way with remote networking.
    Finally use the TiVo
    .

    I found your old original post from last year. Assuming you’re still in Saudi Arabia I fear you’re out of luck even right from the start. USA uses a different broadcast standard (ATSC) while Saudi Arabia uses DVB-T. Totally different and the tuner incompatible.

    yes that was my post but now I am in Pakistan, it uses the DVB-C also few Channel uses ATSC. Still it will be useful because DVB-C uses STB box and as I know and seen in USA working with DISHTV Network it works.

    So my question remain, can you Help?

    I can’t, as I’m not a software programmer. But from what I understand from those that can what you are wanting to do is a major rework of the TiVo software for which we don’t have the proprietary development tools, and then needing to create your own TV guide emulator.

    No software changes are possible without a PROM mod. The whole boot process is protected using keys which are not publically available.
    Even with the PROM mod, as Darren has pointed out, it would be a major piece of work.
