SOURCE: 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.

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: Motorola Cable Box DCt2244/1661/abcdeg

I called Comcast they said I could buy a box from ebay and it would be no problem. When I got it had no pic or sound, I called and they said if it was unplugged for 2 months or more it wouldn't have proper upgrades and is junk and said not to buy from ebay. Then why did they tell me I could on the first phone call? Thanks Comcast.....

SOURCE: Ref: Motorola DCH3200 Problem with channel input.

Unplug the comcast digital box and wait 20 seconds or so, then plug it back it. I had the same problem and was given this solution and it worked. NOTE: the program guide will require at least 24 hours to "fill up" again. I was told that the problem is that the cpu in the digital box gets overloaded and needs to be rebooted/reset.

Hope this works for you

My comcast cable box is slow in responding


is it running through a reciever? sometimes the reciever makes it feel as if there is a delay.

if there is no cable signal when you tune to a channel the box will hang till it times out and says "temp off air" then you can change the channel.

hope something here was helpfull leave more details

good luck

Motorola DVR Model DCX3501-M front display shows the channel selection. I want it to display the time of day and only show the channel selection when I am changing channels. The manual is of no help


It is a cable provider setup within the menu. On charter here are the steps - menu, TV guide main menu, setup, Cable box setup, front LED display.... I don't know what these other people are trying to answer for you...lol. You can also adjust the brightness display by pressing power followed by menu (starting with the tv on).

Can I connect a dct6200 to my comcast network?


You probably will be able to for a little while, until the headend your DCT talks back to gets around to polling it.  Polling is when the main computer checks all of the cable boxes in its' domain for channel auths, pay-per-view purchases, and other behind the scene info.  If the DCT isn't registered on the system, the headend will send a disconnect signal...eventually.  This may happen in either a couple of days, or a few days, (hedging here) depending on the polling schedule. You may also find that while the DCT is operating, initially, the channel map maybe different, if your box was from another city or state. As to whether Comcast will allow registering a box that was bought, and not rented properly through them, that is highly debatable. There's no rule I am aware of against that, however.
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.)

When that happens its most likley you had a power outage and the box reset.  Well kinda reset but not all the way.  You can unplug the power and wait about 10sec and plug it back in and wait a few min to a few hours, and If that doesn't work get a new box.

Is it the DCT or the cable signal?


if you are getting signal of the proper strength and quality the cabling is good.the problem is the box trying to decode the signals.a lot of signals are encripted and have to be decoded by the box.if the box is not responding fast enough you will see bloches on the tv.if you see scrambled channel you are not payinfor that channel.and if you are paying for a channel and it comes up scrambled your box is not working correct.get your company to upgrade the box.
