Hi jace1969,


Once you've got the code on your screen from the box, you need to enter that code at

You're presented with a Google login page because YouTube is part of Google. You just need to log in with the e-mail address and password associated with the account you've got registered on YouTube, then you'll get a box where you can enter the code from TiVo.


Hopefully this will help.

Loc: PR4 1, TV: XL+SkyHD, BB: 100Mbps
2x 1TB TiVo: {15.3.1.RC3-VMC-2-C00}
SuperHub: R37 {Modem mode}
I don't work for VM, and I don't plan to!

If the link takes you to the Google sign in page it's because you are not signed into Google on your PC.  If you enter your login details you will then be presented with the activation page.
