Re: tivo

You can use SATELLITE and CABLE at the same time which involves DIPLEXING.but if you do not have satellite service then ,NO.You cannot use the TIVO functions with cable.However you can have a stand-alone Tivo that is specially made for either cable or satellite.Try reading up on the Standalone Tivo's perhaps the have a Tivo 2 stand-alone now.If your really lucky there might be a hack for the mod you are wanting.Try you might get lucky.

I inserted a disc in my tivo to watch and it said that it was not formated and now it will not open tray. Anyone know how to open the tray and remove disc. I have watched this movie before and it worked...

I solved this problem by unplugging Tivo over night and trying it again in the morning after it reprogrammed. I read of another dvd player doing this and this is how the problem was solved.

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.

Hughes DirecTV TiVo SD-dvr80 quit working

the are some new features that tivo does not support. you still can watch your saved programs. Sadly the older tivos are equipped for the digital transitoins. I know Tivo and Directv are releasing a new receiver in a few months.

Digits dropped while changing channel

Make sure that you have the correct DTV box selected on the Tivo unit in the Guided Setup.
Make sure that the IR cables are directly in front of the IR eye on the Tivo.

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
