Count Me In
I've got two (2) TiVo HDs who are in dire need of a PROM fix. I hate to see them suffer. Help!

Sent a PM to Omikron for 1 S3 update. Hope he gets started soon with the "fall prom update days"

I also sent him a PM about getting this done, now I wish I could just find someone that has the prom's for sale and I will do it myself. I found out a buddy of mine has all the tools to remove the old prom and socket the new one. He has the microsope, the solder reflow equipment and an IR oven if I needed that. I could even program the prom if I had the code to do it he has that stuff too. Just wish I could find the info that I need.

Whenever you restart the service, do let us know. It is much appreciated.
I have one Tivo HD that "needs" a PROM mod.
Thanks in advance.

2 TivoHD just waiting for upgrades!

Omikron, Where are u?
I hope you come back and still want to have a Prom Date.

don't think all the "me too" posts are gonna help too much. he doesn't respond to email or phone calls, so the forum is probably pretty low on the list. he'll be back if/when he comes back.

I'm surprised Omikron didn't at least do a final post and confirm he's no longer performing any PROM services. Given the state of the economy I'd think he would at least have a qualified co-worker who'd be looking to make a few extra $$.
Is it possible he received a letter from tivo's legal department?

He did post about his intentions not to continue doing this:

I wish he would have just raised his prices...therefore slowing the demand and getting a greater value for himself.
I myself would be happy to pay $100 - $200 for the parts and $500 - $1000 for the turn-key service. I understand that I would be the exception...but that is the point...fewer requests and more money.
Hopefully he will read this.

So you've socketed the PROM, but you haven't reprogrammed it, right?
