I have a Phillips 6000 Tivo. Has been upgraded 2 years ago and worked fine. I relocated and it was in storage for about 5 months and the sat part is working fine but says i need to activate the Tivo subscription. Has 2.5.2 on it with lifetime sub. What can I do?

As always thanks for the help.

Call DTV and activate the DVR service for $4.99/month. I'm guessing your unit was not one of the very few S1 DTivos that actually had legit lifetime subs.

If you are the original owner...call DTV and tell them what you told us. Shouldn't be a problem for them to reactivate it (since it has a lifetime sub) and that should be the end of it.

Did you plug it in and let it make a call? It occurs to me that it might need to do that one time just so DTV knows that it is the receiver that has a lifetime subbed TiVo DVR--not a new one that would be a monthly fee for them.
