Question about Tivo Series2 TCD649080 Video Recorder

1 Answer

I have the series 2 tcd649080 tivo. I recently upgraded my comcast cable service to digital which now includes a converter box. Comcast says they send a scrambled signal and tivo needs a smartchip to read the signal. They will send me the chip, can it be installed in my tivo tcd649080?

Have you hooked it up and just tried it. Comcast supports Tivo. If you do indeed have a scramble problem I believe there is a hack for it.

Comcast cable channel one off from Tivo channel


I've never, ever heard of this problem - having been a happy TiVo user for over 15 years. The very first thing I would do is call Comcast and tell them what is occurring. How long had everything worked OK before this happened? If things were OK for a long time before this, and if your TV carrier was, likewise, Comcast for a long time; and if you haven't gotten a new TV or cable box for a long time, then the problem must rest with Comcast. It must!
In our home, with the number of movies, shows/sporting events/etc. which we record, that would be totally unacceptable!

Try this: Unplug everything (with everything turned off). Make sure your TiVo remote is good (fully charged batteries and the code is right for your TV/cable box), Wait for 10 minutes and plug everything back in, starting with TiVo, then the TV, then any other accessories.

Plug back in and do a complete restart from scratch - like you did when you first set up TiVo.

Make SURE that your receiving channel (3 or 4) is the same on both. It could be that someone accidentally has changed it - are there kids in the house?

If none of this works, get Comcast in there. That's all I can tell you. . .

Try this first...Press the TiVo button at the top center of the Remote, then > Messages & Settings > Restart or Reset System > Repeat Guided Setup and then follow the onscreen instructions from there.

This should load your new channel lineup into your TiVo.

If all the channels are still not recognized... Press the TiVo button at the top center of the remote, then > Messages & Settings > Settings > Channels > Channel List and then make sure all of the channels you receive are checked.

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.)

Tivo & cable


Have you gone through the automated set-up again, to let the Tivo detect what channels you have and don't have?

I had a similar issue a few years back when Comcast changed our line up, and that solved it for me.
