I need the 5-digit Tivo IR code for my Magnavox (Funai) ZV450MW8 combo DVD-R/VCR unit.
Reading through many Tivo user forums, I discovered that I can use the ATSC tuner within the Magnavox to ''push'' the digital channels through so that I can view through Tivo (Series 2, single tuner). Coax splits: directly in Tivo, and into Magnavox, then AV cables from Magnavox into Tivo. Yes, it's hooked up properly. Yes, I've lined up the IR cables properly. (No, not going to use a DTA or other STB.) Yes, I've gone through Guided Setup, basically ''tricking'' Tivo into thinking it has both Cable and Satellite inputs, where the digital channels from the Magnavox acts as the ''Satellite'' feed. Yes, I've tried dozens of codes through the Advanced Channel Changing menu already. If I could just put in the correct IR code into Tivo, then Tivo can change the channels on the Magnavox and solve my woes. Thanks!

Re: Need Tivo IR code for Magnavox ZV450MW8 DVD/VCR
Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily. http://homenol.blogspot.com/ http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device..

I believe that you are already on the right path, your tivo will still be assuming that you are running off the cable box plus you watch dancing with the stars for five minutes one time just to see Warren Sapp attempt to dance and now all of a sudden it wants to record every single piece of televison with dance in the title or discription, but I'm not bitter.
Just re-accomplish the set up and let it know that you are no longer running a cable box. Also tell it that ditching you friday night to hang with it's old high school buddies was so not cool.

To dub a DVD, first press Setup on the remote. Then select Recording (use the Up/Down arrows and then press OK). Navigate to and select Dubbing Mode. Select the direction for the duplication. Then press Setup to leave the Setup menu. Then press DVD to ensure that the unit is ready to play the DVD. (Press VCR if you are dubbing a video tape.) Then Press Play to advance to the section that you wish to duplicate, if needed, and then press Pause. (Press Pause a bit early; the dubbing process will lose about 5 seconds.) Now, press the other Mode button (VCR if recording to tape, DVD if recording to DVD). Next press D.Dubbing on the recorder or the remote. (The button is to the right of the Channel Up/Down buttons on the recorder. It's near the bottom left on the remote.) Press Stop when the section to be duplicated has been played in its entirety.
You have this backwards. The codes are stored in the remote. If your Mitsubishi remote is programmable, you can search for a code that will control your Magnavox combo. If no code is found, you may have to get another programmable remote and search again.
This DVD/VCR isn't compatible with the GE Universal remote. Sorry.
I would recommend contacting Magnavox (actually FUNAI CORP.) at www. magnavox.com, and seeing if they would be willing to send you a remote that was compatible with your player. There was another Magnavox player remote that also worked with Magnavox MWD2205. So it's possible that a number of remotes would work for you. Good luck! :)
That unit may have been built by Funai, the poorest of the Japanese electronics companies.
You might try any codes you find for the brands listed below, all of which are made by Funai:
