Tivo gets stuck, freezes and powers up reapeatedly

The Cable company sent out two service men to bring in a new box with HD for my TV and installed it. Since then the Tivo seems to freeze for a few seconds while watching something i taped and then it just got worse, as it starts to play it will freeze and got to black and power up again. So any show i start watching on my Tivo will not last too long before it freezes and repowers. Can you help?

I have 2 Tivo HD XL boxes with CableCards and I receive all channels one one box but am missing channels on the other box.


Missing channels are a sure sign that your CableCard is not paired correctly or is defective. Sometimes, the issue can be as simple as a clerical error, where the serial number of the CableCard was not entered correctly into your cable provider's system. Call your cable company and have a tech come out to take a look at your CableCard configuration.

My tivo HD is not broadcasting or recording in HD


As far as I know, you need the cable cards to get HD through the Tivo, because they're what does the HD decoding and output.

Can't get benefits of service because I lease TIVO thru cable co.


Your cable company is telling you that you do not have enought band width to download and use (VOD) Video On Demand.  They are unwilling to sell you, or your equiptment does not support such a high speed continuous download.  No.. Their is no way around it. Nextflix or Redbox may be alternitives for you.

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 installation


Since the Series2 doesn't do HD, you don't need any fancy connections, and it's pretty simple to hook up.

1) Disconnect the cable that's connecting your cable box to your TV, from the TV end.
2) Connect the end that *was* connected to your TV, to the "input" on the Tivo.
3) Get another piece of the same cable (coaxial cable), and connect the output of the Tivo to the input on your TV.

That's it.

You may just need to go to Best Buy and get a piece of coaxial cable to connect the Tivo to the TV.

If you need further help, let me know.

TV freezes when switching to a digital channel


The problem your describing can be contributed to your cable box. Depending on your cable company there are times when the box has trouble translating the signal to the tv. You tv is operating normally. Suggest to the cable company to switch your box.

Connecting my Humax Series 2 Tivo to a Motorola HD DCH3416 Cable Box


Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.

You can still hook the two up together, though.

What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this:
Split the cable coming out of the cable box.
Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo.
Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV
Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.

This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.

Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.

Tivo HD will not record when Onkyo HT-SR800 is off


Do you want to run all your cables thru the receiver? There really is no benefit for you to do this since that receiver doesn't handle HDMI audio nor do any kind of component to HDMI conversion. Might as well connect your tivo box directly to the TV with HDMI. You'll have to switch inputs on your TV between the cable box, but its not a big deal.

Non-HDMI Tivo connection


The solution I use is S-Video from cable box to TIVO, and from TIVO to TV. That gets you the highest quality signal that the TIVO can handle. To watch true HD signal, switch TV from S-Video input to Hi-Def input and tune to HD channel. I have an HD cable box connected to both outputs, your situation may be different.

Feel free to ask for more help.
