SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: TIVO DVR : Won't Change Channels

Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal.  Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly.  This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs.  I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.  Hope this helps.  Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.

SOURCE: Network connection says connected but receives nothing

We are using software called Brainware Columbus to do Remote OS Deployment, Software Deployment & Remote Support. We have had LANDesk installed on all our computers, and since we uninstalled LANDesk and installed McAfee 8.7i Enterprise, we have had some difficulties with some computers where they show they are connected to our Wired Lan, but their IP settings have dissappeared, the settings are blank. When you click on the repair option for the network, it gives an error straight away, and we have also tried Uninstalled & Reinstalling the NIC, that also doesnt solve the problem. Please help

Why am i getting a Temporary Service Connection error message?


Did you go into Settings, Phone and Network, Change network settings, and inform the TiVo of the changes, especially to the SSID (which you should not be broadcasting)?

I'm pretty sure the TiVo doesn't need to know the router's password, if you mean the password you have to enter to access your router via a web browser for purposes of changing settings on it, although if you're running any kind of wireless encryption on that router the TiVo will need to know whatever password is associated with that.

And while you're at it, consider giving everything on your home network that doesn't leave the house a fixed IP address that lies outside of your router's DHCP address pool, and making that address pool only a little bit bigger than the number of devices you anticipate needing an IP address assigned via DHCP once you've handed out fixed addresses to everything that doesn't travel.

Tip

Do you have a Tivo Premier and are you experiencing wireless communication...


Recenty, I discovered that devices were dropping off of my wireless network (Netgear N300 wireless N with DSL modem). After trial and error, the solution to the wireless communication problems was to create a wireless N bridge using the Tivo Wireless N adapters.

To use this feature, you will need two Tivo wireless N adapters. One wireless N adapter should be set to bridge and plugged into an available ethernet port into your router. The second adapter should be set to client and plugged into the ethernet port in the back of the Tivo Premier. Once the power has been applied to both wireless adapters and the Wireless adapter (connected to the router) has connected to an available address on your router, press and hold the button (on top of each adapter) to establish a secure wireless connection between both adapters.

Once each adapter has established communication, you will have a separate 5Ghz Wi Fi signal (as well as a channel )dedicated to you Tivo devices throughout the house. Each Tivo Premier added to the house should have the wireless N adapter and connected using the secure connection to the wireless bridge by pressing the button on each adapter (the one on the router as well as the one on the Tivo to install).

If sucessfully installed, you should be able to connect to all Tivos on the network for management as well as streaming. If communication between the Tivos isn't successful, you will have to restart each Tivo and establish a new connection to the Tivo service.

Another suggestion when using the wireless N adapters is to setup a static IP address on each Tivo that is higher than the IP address assigned to the wireless adapter. Each Tivo utilized two IP addresses for each device (one for the adapter and one for the Tivo). You may have to check the router administration screen to determine the IP addresses used for the wireless adapters before establishing a static IP address for the Tivos. If you assign static IP addresses to each Tivo, you will have to restart each Tivo and reconnect them to the Tivo service to establish proper network mapping.

With this wireless network configuration, you will ensure that your Tivos are connected to the service using high speed, dedicated wireless N communication for streaming purposes between the services offered while not impacting other computers, servers, video game machines, and tablets that are connected into your house.

Since the Roamio uses a built in wireless adapter, you may not have success in adding a Roamio to the wireless bridge created on your router unless you disable the built in wireless adapter and purchase the external wireless N model from Tivo.

Instructions on setting up wireless bridge can be found at this location:

How do I hook up tivo,Vizio,Xfinity together?


You need a cable box from xfinity that does not have a DVR built in and then you need to see whether the Tivo can control it. You will need an ir blaster cable from here:

www.weaknees.com/tivo-cables.php

Then connect the Tivo to the cable box and the TiVo to the TV.

I cannot figure how to set up to cable internet


You need a TIVO wireless adaptor or a USB ethernet adaptor to connect to the internet on some models unless your model have an ethernet adaptor attached to it

From your Tivo go into the setting menu and look for network setup. Tivo will connect to the network and download the schedule.

Once you get that hooked up download Tivo Desktop from Tivo.com. There is a free version of the program. Give the software your IP address on the network for your computer if you know it and see if the software detects it on your network.

Toshiba SD -H400


It sucks that you can't dial in anymore, but if you have broadband internet there is an easy solution. You can buy for about $20 on Newegg a LiInksys USB200M USB ethernet adapter that allows your Tivo to connect to the Tivo service using your broadband internet. If you modem is in fact dead, this may be the only chance you have at getting Tivo to connect again. I have 2 SD-H400 and I don't (and have never) use the telephone line. I use the broadband connection only and have never had a problem.

Even if you don't have broadband you can get this to work with the USB200M and dial up too. You'll have to connect to your dial up provider using your PC, then set your PC up to use Windows built in "Internet Connection Sharing". You then connect your Tivo to you PC using an ethernet cable. If the cable goes directly from the Tivo to the PC, you'll need a crosswired or crossover ethernet cable. If you have a network switch or network hub in between, you can use a regular network cable. Use your Tivo menus to "Connect to the Tivo Service Now" and it should connect and get any Guide or Software Updates that are available. Keep in mind this will be painfully slow as dial up internet is much slower than broadband.

This problem could also be caused by a recent switch in telephone connection. If you are now using a Voice Over IP (VOIP) telephone, I don't think Tivo will connect with that type of phone line. You're only option then will be the USB200M and some type of network connection to the internet.
