If your DVR displays the following messages during startup:
"Almost there...a few minutes more"
If either one of these messages continues to display for more than 5 - 8 minutes please perform the following steps:
Step 1: Unplug the power cord from the back of your DVR, disconnect the USB network adapter, Ethernet cable, or phone cord. If a DVR Expander is attached to the DVR, unplug it.
Step 2: Wait 15 seconds. Reconnect the power cord on you DVR Expander (if applicable), then on your DVR.
Steb 3: Once you see the 'Welcome...Powering Up' screen, wait 5 minutes for the startup process to continue.
Step 4: You should soon see the 'Almost there...a few minutes more' screen. Wait for at least 5 minutes for the startup process to continue.
Step 5: Once you see the TiVo Central screen, reconnect your USB network adapter, Ethernet cable, or phone cord.
Note: If this does not resolve your issue please contact Sparklight.
