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

I have a Tivo Series 2 connected direct to my cable coax line (no cable box, no IR ****). It worked fine until about 1 month ago, my Tivo acts like it is changing channels but my TV stays on the same channel (4) it flashes the TV screen like it is trying to change the TV channel, the top of the onscreen menu states the new channel, but the TV is stuck on channel 4. It never leaves channel 4 even though it says Tivo says it taped all kinds of shows on all different channels, it only tapes shows at the correct times but all on channel 4. I shut off my Tivo and the TV alone changes channels just fine. It won't change channels at all (even manually) when my Tivo is on. This is purely a Tivo problem, not a cable box or IR problem as neither are used in this case.

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 turns off TV


Hi,

For some reason your Tivo is tripping the internal breaker of your TV. Check the cables and see that they are not damaged and are connected properly (all the cables that hook up to the Tivo). If you have a spare set of cables, try them to see if the TV still turns off.

Changing Channels with Series 2 Tivo


Make sure you are using the IR cable to control the Cable Box.
Make sure that you have already done a guided setup again from the tivo box.

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!

Motorola DCT 6200/1000 seems to only have one audio output?


There are three options:

1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo

2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.

3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.

I'm getting cable channels but no high def


Your TiVo is only recording basic cable (i.e., channels it can receive without a cable box). You will need a digital cable box from your cable company to record channels above 99. If your TiVo is a Series 2 you will not be able to actually record in HD either. You should be able to record the HD channels from the cable box, but they will not be HD quality. (This is my current setup and while the picture quality is much better than basic cable, it pales compared to bypassing the TiVo and watching HD directly off the cable box to the TV.)

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.

Tivo Programing


You either don't have it hooked up right w/ the source video cables connected or if you've changed setups from one tv to another (different cable box or input) you need to go through guided setup again, but first check your cables, ensure they are going to the inputs (rca or coax) and not going to the outputs.
