How to Clear & Delete Everything
*All fields required unless otherwise indicated.
This procedure will return your TiVo DVR to its factory settings, which will erase all Season Passes, WishLists, and settings.
This can take several hours to complete, so plan accordingly.
IMPORTANT: If you have a DVR with CableCARD(s), you will need to have each CableCARD paired again after the DVR completes the Clear and Delete Everything process. If you tune to a copy-protected channel, a screen will pop up to notify you that you need to contact your cable provider. Analog, unencrypted, and encrypted channels that are not copy-protected will be viewable without having the cards paired.
