tivo box stuck on start up screen when no coax cable
After getting a new v6 box, i want to put the old tivo box in another room and connect them via ethernet so i can play the recorded shows on the V6 box on the old tivo box. The old tivo box is a samsung SMT-C7100.
There is no coax cable in the room that i'm putting the old tivo box in. So when i power up the old box it stays permanently at the starting up prompt. the third led is blinking and the blue light is solid.
How do i convince the box to get past the "starting up" screen?
