    dewanaboby,

    Welcome to the forums, Where are you located ?

    I'm not quite sure what you are trying to achieve.

    Are you just wanting to record NTSC signals like a dumb VCR or do you want full TiVo functionality.

    For the TiVo to work properly here in Australia/New Zealand it needs to be hacked so it will work with our PAL tv system. see PrepareTiVoDisk

    thank you for replying,
    at the moment i am in usa as a student but i am from Papatoetoe, as you know there is ntsc here and i don't want to yet install the hack for pal, will do when i get back in about six months. i do not use this to record from tv so i don't really need guide and all that. i just want to use it as a vcr but i do hate that nag screen is there a way to get rid of that

    Yes, there are a few methods. The simplest one is to set your TiVo's date for a year in the past that has the same day/date lineup as the current year, I think 1994 is the same as 2005. But be aware that a TiVo's clock will drift without making daily calls, so it will need to be updated regularly.

    There are other methods also, try a search on either tivocommunity or dealdatabase.
