Question Networking problem and question

I would really appreciate some help with this issue. I have searched and have learned tons and have set up my system but cannnot figure out this issue. May be basic but....

I have three series 2 dtivos. Two with 6.2, one with 4.0. All have hmo and can be ftp, tivowebplus, etc. with computer. The two 6.2 work fine and can view now showing on each. They all three show the other two units but the 4.0 gives me a not activated screen when trying to connect to the two 6.2 units.

Is there something I am missing here. Can they be linked to work together or do I need to upgrade the 4.0 to 6.2. I would prefer not so as not to lose what is on 4.0. How do you activate the 4.0 to work with the 6.2s, etc.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure about your problem as I had my four units at different mixes of the 4.01b and 6.2 software and they worked fine together. Anyway, you can always upgrade the other unit to 6.2 via slices if you are a little linux savvy. Check out Dellanave's guide. its what I used on one of my units that I didn;t want to lose programming on.

The Bengals and Tivo, life should have a few obsessions.
