My PTV100 has worked great for over ten years. Just recently it has started dropping digits when it attempts to change channel, either by remote or by prescheduled program. If I change the channel by remote, you can actually see the Tivo banner attempt to enter the correct digits, but when the DTV banner comes up, it shows only two of the three digits. Same thing with a prescheduled recording. When I watch a prerecorded show, at the beginning you can see where a digit is dropped. I have replaced the infrared emitters, and that didn't help. When I change the channel with the DTV remote, it works fine. This leads me to believe that the component inside the TIVO unit is causing the problem. Any ideas on how to solve this? I have lifetime service, so I'd really like to get this repaired!

Sure, Daewoo codes are - 0019, 0039, 0092, 0451.
If the four digits don't work drop the leading zero and use 3 numbers.

first of all, make sure all your connections are secure and threaded all the way in. Next, go to the main menu and press 5 (configuration) and press 1 (search for channels) if this doesn't work, press 4(signal strength meter) and see how strong your signal is. You may just need to re-position your antennae. If all else fails try system reset(number 5) and repeat search for channels. I've had similiar experiences with mine but I have a 62% signal strength and still get 20-something channels. Hope this helps.
Go to the manufacturers web site to see if they have a driver for Vista, but you may also be able to run it in "compatibility mode". Not all older programs will work under Vista. Software vendors are working to release Vista-compatible versions everday but in the mean time you can run the program in "Compatibility Mode."To do so:
Open Windows Explorer.
Location the programs folder(My computerC:Program filesPhillips) and find the executable.
Right click the executable and click the Properties option.
Select the Compatibility tab.
Select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode option.
From the drop-down list, choose the operating system you ran before upgrading to Vista or just go with XP if unknown,you can always change it again..
If necessary, select the option to run the program as an administrator.
l. Push the "Menu button" 2. Push the "Menu button" again 3. Scroll to "Setup" and push "OK" 4. Scroll to "Guide setup" and push "OK" 5. Scroll to"No Auto Tune" 6. Click on arrow next to "No Auto Tune". This will change it to "Auto Tune". 7. Now exit, or just punch in any channel number.
You should now be able to go directly to a channel without entering zeros.
It has been a while since I worked on these kind of electronic equipment and I do not remember or kept any notes about specific troubleshooting. I worked for a company before that was repairing these motorola satellite receivers for starchoice Canada.
Are you using the audio/video inputs or RF input?
Where in Canada do you live?
Sorry, looking up the Phillips PTV100, it does not support over the air broadcasting. Supports, cable and satellite reception.
The reason you are picking up The VHF channels (2-13) is they match cable channel frequencies up to this point. The UHF frequencies are not the same as the cable frequencies, even though the channel numbers seem the same.
Some other models or brands of TIVO may have this ability.
