I suggest calling up Tivo and/or DirecTV and telling them these steps.


TiVo doesn't provide phone support for DirecTV DVRs.
Here is the standard problem recovery procedure from DirecTV...

1. Leave the receiver box on.
2. Unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet. (If your receiverís light is still on, you have pulled the wrong plug.)
3. Leave receiver unplugged for 15 seconds.
4. Reconnect it to the electrical outlet and return to normal viewing.

.... end of procedure.
