SOURCE: TIVO DVR : Won't Change Channels

Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal.  Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly.  This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs.  I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.  Hope this helps.  Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.

SOURCE: On-screen menu works but channel search yields no channels.

if you can access tv menu go to settings that show source(antenna/cable)highlight cable setting and hit search/program ;tv should go through all the channels and scan them into memory. it just might be that it is still under antenna setting .try solution ,it might be what's wrong.

SOURCE: Cannot access channel 73 on TV2

If you are unable to access the TV menu using the buttons on the TV itself it is possible you can with the TV2 remote if it still controls the volume etc. for this TV. If it doe not you will need to find a code for your set in the manual for the receiver or you can go to the following link to find that info as well.
Assuming you have control of the volume still press the small TV button on the top left of the remote. Now press the menu button and you may be able to access the TV's menu. If so you need to run a channel scan/auto program the TV. You may need to use the buttons on the TV still to maneuver through the menu.
If you are still unable to access the menu you may need to purchase a universal to access the menu.

    SOURCE: I get the dish network


    It is possible to get your TV1 remote to work TV2, but it would have to be a model 6.0/6.3/6.4. If it is not one of those models you would need to have a remote ordered and sent out; then it would work. If your remote is one of the above models; I have included the steps to get that done.

    Changing Remote from UHF-to-IR and IR-to-UHF:

    1.) Verify correct model of remote and it is IR/UHF compatible. Remove tab from bottom of remote. For TV1: Green Tab with Green 1 in it. For TV2: Blue tab with 2 and black UHF in it.

    2.) Push correct tab into remote, and go to your main TV.

    3.) Access System Information either with a remote, Sys Info button on front of receiver, or powering it off and pressing the up arrow.

    4.) Press and hold the gray SAT button until all buttons on top light up. Release and while the light is blinking enter a number between 1-15 and press Pound(#)

    5.) Press Record 3 times and check to see if the address changed to the number you chose. Verify remote works.

    If you have any other questions you can let me know here; or at and I would be happy to see what else can be done!

    2. Press and Hold the TV Power button for three seconds until the LED flashes
    3. Enter the three-digit code using the buttons on the number pad.
    4. Press OK. Note: The LED will flash three times.
    5. Test functionality with the TV
    6. Return to Step 2 if the remote is not able to turn the TV On/Off, change the volume and mute the television.
