Question about Tivo Series 2 80-Hours Video Recorder
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.
