i have a sony SVR-2000 tivo system and i was woundering if i can skip the guided setup and just maunualy record (or can i even do that) right now i just want to see how good the recording is and then ill order the service.

Nope.

Order the service for $12.95 for a single month. I can't imagine why you would want to subvert the guided setup just to "see how good the recording is".

so what your saying is that i cant skip the guided setup



Posted by: Robert S

The only way to skip Guided Setup is to restore a backup from an already configured TiVo to the hard drive. This isn't especially difficult, but it does mean breaking the warranty seal.

You do get a few days 'grace' so you'll see the service working before you subscribe. Once the grace period expires your TiVo will lock down and only allow Live TV and play back of existing recordings.

ive already broken the warrany seal so thats not a problem, so were can i get an already set up backup?

so tivo gives you a few days to try tivo for free?

As already poinyed out, it's not worth doing all this to save $13. If you're really serious about "checking the recording quality" just pay for a month. If what you're really trying to do is hack the service, you're in the wrong place.
