Tiviar Alpha Plus 1TB

    While ago I purchased brand new one of these while searching for new way of watching tv.

    It was hooked up in shop and really never used again as I found different source for tv and sky had butchered the cable connection.

    Now I either want to set it up for an elderly relative to stop them switching between remotes but am clueless on how or where to start and not the most tech savvy.

    Any help towards setting this up would be greatly appreciated.

    If I took another option to list on adverts, how much do you think people would be prepared to pay?

    That box is very old now and the zgemma h7s is a better option. i have 2 tiviars lying spare all set up. Setting them up is the tricky bit but if you are a bit techy and patient it can be done. Did it work when you first had it? If left lying unused it may take a while to spring back to life. Have a look at this thread and see if it helps. one tip the image was updated early on so read to thread where that is mentioned. And if box came with original software then thats another story. say a bit more and it may already be good to go, tunr on and press menu then information, even post a pic. My other half did not like the remote.

    I doubt if anyone would buy it for more than 80 euro or less ie for the hdd and even now ssd's have taken over.

    @op If the Tiviar is working correctly it is perfect for an elderly relative. If you follow the link on the first post on this thread ( there is an image all set up and ready to go.

    It is pretty straightforward, but if you run into any questions ask on that thread and I'll try and help. The remote works perfectly with most TV's, allowing a single remote to be used. You'll find the codes for the remote in the Tiviar Manual, which I've also uploaded at the link in the first post.
