Re: Tivo Dtv

No, you need a regular directv receiver, or a directv w/ tivo receiver or a directv dvr.

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 with no audio!

Do the speakers on your TV still work? Is it connected to a home theater system?

DVR recording of off-the-air television signals

TiVo works with 'off the air' TV watchers as wellNot really worth the extra money though if you just have VHF and UHF channels.

Tivo not working

Looks like you only have one tuner hooked up (one cable ) to your tivo. You need 2 in order to work properly
