Question about Tivo Series2 TCD649080 Video Recorder
The TIVO is connected to the Cable Box using a Serial Connection. The tivo can no longer communicate with the Cable Box. The Cable box works fine and can change channels. I bought a new Serial cable, but still I can't get the Tivo to change channels when I use the Tivo remote or when I have programmed a program to be recorded.
i can change channels on the cable box with tivo remote but tivo is stuck on one channel.
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.

Do not use another remote around your tivo, also when it misses channels alot, try restarting the system.
