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: No antenna reception with digital converter box.

Hello Faznmc,

I have found that with an ordinary antenna connected to the converter box it can receive nearly all channels, however I have run into cases where I had to use an amplified TV antenna to pick up signals. I have started telling folks that when they install their converter boxes to try to use the plain old rabbit ears antenna, but if that does not work, use an amplified antenna, and that usually does the trick.

I hope this helps
Thank you,
Shuttle83

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: Nikkai 2727 Video sender will not send signals

check that you have the sender plugged into the sky box and the receiver into the required tv and not the other way round. The wrong way round still allows the controller to change channels but you will see nothing also ensure that both sender and reciever are on same channel 1 to 4

You can't. You have to send it back to dedicated micros, unless of course you can use hyperterminal.

Want to know if u can tape one channel while watching another


I haven't met a DVR or a PVR that doesn't have twin tuners. This is the only way for digital reception to be acceptable for a lot of people used to watching one channel and recording another for the last few decades with analogue tv and the trusty VCR.

You should indeed be able to record one channel while you watch another or if the equipment is of premium quality it is possible you could record two programmes while watching something already recorded.
I hope this helps.

Yup, my Panasonic Sky box is also stuck in standby mode.


It was an overheating problem. I added a 12v fan to cool the cpu chip.

I have re-tuned my TU-CT20 Panasonic set top box several times, successfully in that I have a new list of stations, but every time BBC1 and BBC2 are omitted. It starts with ITV1 at channel 1.


If you have all the cahnnels updated then you will have to manually edit the station list and change the order of the channels. refer to your manual for instructions.

TV suddenly lost colour - gone black and white Virgin Media.


most likely the problem is due to a "lock up" you need to reset the system, unplug the set, and look in the back panel (I am assuming it is a digital (flat screen tv?) for a small (usuall) red nipple, again making sure the power is unplugged, depress the nipple with a bll point pen for about 5 seconds, wait a few minuets, and plug the set back in, you will most likely need to go to your menu for set up again, but you will be starting with a clean slate (so to sleak) and the tuner should then correctly pass the signal though

Digital channels lost on DVD recorder


I'm delighted to report that all is now working.
I turned the recorder off at the mains electricity supply, left it off for several hours, switched it back on, searched for new digital channels, and it found them all :-)
I had tried this before, but only left it disconnected for a few minutes, and clearly that wasn't enough.

ZENEITH DTT900 ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERTER BOX CONNECTIONS


Can't go through the VCR in the normal way. The DTV box must be tuned to the channel you want to record and left there. Cannot tell VCR to tape one channel and watch another nor tape multiple timed and multiple channel shows unless the DTV is tuned to that specific channel. This makes most VSR functions useless.
