Question about Pioneer DVR-810H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

I can't get my tivo to change channels. It stays on the same channel

I recently re-hooked up my tivo using my pioneer dvr-810h. I used to have a cable box and change channles through the IR hookup. However, I no longer have a cable box and simply have the cable line hooked up to my tivo, then to the back of my receiver/tv. Do I need to restart the system or go through guided set-up again to change my video usage? I'm thinking the problem is that my tivo still thinks i'm using a cable box when in fact I am not. I cannot find the correct setting on the tivo. Help. Thanks.

I believe that you are already on the right path, your tivo will still be assuming that you are running off the cable box plus you watch dancing with the stars for five minutes one time just to see Warren Sapp attempt to dance and now all of a sudden it wants to record every single piece of televison with dance in the title or discription, but I'm not bitter.

Just re-accomplish the set up and let it know that you are no longer running a cable box. Also tell it that ditching you friday night to hang with it's old high school buddies was so not cool.

No video from an Apex digital converter box to TIVO


You may have to set the channel 3/4 switch on the lower right rear of your TiVo to match the output setting of your Apex converter. If your Apex converter is equipped for L/R audio and video output you will get better results using a three-conductor cable to connect to your TiVo.

When my Tivo stops recording a show on, say, channel 54, instead of staying on channel 54 it switches to channel 5. In other words, it only gets ''part'' pf the channel number. This happens with other...


The end of the IR Cable that attaches to your cable box may have to be repositioned.

Try moving it a small distance (you are already close or you wouln't be receiving ANY channel changing info. from it) and see if that helps.

Good luck!

Tivo won't change my TV Channels anymore with direct cable


I re-did the guided setup in the Tivo under Messages & Settings/Restart-Reset System/Restart menu section in Tivo. Once I did that, it cleared this issue, even though I didn't have to change any of my settings thru this guided setup. I tried a reset alone first, but that did not fix it. Only this fixed it. We had lost both power and cable during a recent tree fall in a storm, and when both were restored, this problem started. I have a cable coax directly in the back of the TV (no cable box/IR etc) and the system is on a home wireless network. I actually have 2 identical Tivo's in the house set up the same way but only one had this problem. The other worked no different after the outage.

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.
