I just bought another 4040 off ebay for the kids. It was a great price and the person that sold it to me was easy to work with.


It was shipped FedEx ground from the Bay Area so I got it quick.


When I hooked it up I noticed there were a few episodes of MI-5 and queer eye I had not seen so I was going leave the unit and just change the setup. No harm right.


Well thank good ness I thought to check the screensaver and photos because my kids would have been traumatized for life if the had seen the Gay Porn pictures on it!!!


I have nothing against peoples life choice and as I said the person who I bought it from was nice and easy to work with so I hope no one misreads this as an anti Gay post. It is just a warning that if you put photos like that on a unit take them off before selling it. And if you buy one do a factory reset just to be safe.


Actually since I found it there was no harm done and the wife and I had a good laugh!

That's even better than the idea that toots or someone had that someone who sells his replay should keep the unit signed up for myreplay.com and then he can arrange all sortrs of weird recordings...

If ReplayTV Freak's kids use the Internet or watch cableTV... they probably see that or worse more often than he'd like to think?


Doesn't toots have a nude male (feline) for her screensaver? :D

Just because they can see it on cable TV or the Internet doesn't mean you have to like them seeing it. I'm mixed on the Gay thing. But I know porn is porn...I wouldn't want them to see gay porn, straight porn, animal porn...or even Clinton porn.

Had to laugh out loud at this one. I haven't sold any of my Replays, so it ain't mine. But, I'm very curious about a couple of things, did you buy this from a guy or a girl? And are we really talking about "real" gay porn or something like screen shots from Showtime's "Queer as Folk"? As for remembering to remove photos before selling - I won't forget to do this after this thread. This is too funny.

OK, I do not know if the person reads this board since I only know his real name from Ebay. AS I said it was a fine transaction and the unit is exactly as advertised, in great shape and I got it in like 3 days.


However... When I say porn, I mean porn!! This was not simply Gay culture, which I have no problem with (I actually appreciated the 2 Episodes of Queer Eye that were left, that show is funny).


These were not nude screen captures. These were on the raunchy side and quite, well, how can you say this they were zeroing in on the desired subject, if you get my drift.


My wife wanted to know why someone would want that on their pause screens. :)


My kids are 6 and 8 so anything more than a peck on the cheek is too much. I have Filter software on their PC's and I use the rating block on the replay. Which actually is awsome, if you have not tired it. It will record anything, but it will not playback shows with ratings other than what you set. So I can tape a show that they cannot watch, but I can from my bedroom. It is quite good with the networked Replay's


I am glad so many find this funny, I got a good laugh too. Although I now know why my wife gets a little peeved at all the TV and movie women with huge breasts. Lets just say I am humbled by this experience ;) :)

hee- hee.. get it? Out with it?


Just a guess, but it's entirely possible your seller did this as a little joke.

One more reason to 'reset' anything with a hard drive! On a PC it could be viruses, here you have who knows what (or, as you say, you saw *exactly* what...).


I am a bit surprised if the seller left it on on purpose, since there could be problems with interstate shipment of such materials.... could also be the eBay seller got it from elsewhere, and didn't check that part of the RTV. I'm not sure I'd check the photo area on a resale!

Does this mean that I might possibly buy a used Replay that had pictures of Hillary naked as a screen saver?

I don't think I understand. Women with large breasts are obscene and shouldn't be on TV? They're equivalent to gay porn?

You are right you don't get it! I never said women with large breasts are obscene. I was making a different point about size ;) Read it again.

AFAIK all you need is the serial number of a unit to sign it up for myreplaytv. And it can be done any number of times, with the most recent signup prevailing. Therefore a person who was let's say, less than totally scrupulous, could sell a RTV and retain a record of the serial number. Then s/he could monkey around with the unit literally forever. If the buyer signed up for myreplaytv, the seller could sign up again and "override" the buyer's signup.


Of course if you sell a unit and are concerned about getting paid, this could be a useful tool to effectively render the unit useless remotely...


Have I got it wrong, or is this a pretty big security hole in the RTV setup?
