Question about Tivo Series 2 80-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

TiVo/Linksys Compatability I Just bought a Series 2 Dual-tuner TiVo, but I found out it is not compatible with my new WRT54G2 wireless router, so I can't connect to my network. Is there a solution, or is there a router that will work with the TiVo?

    I was advised by TIVO tech support to get a linksys router for my ethernet connection but he wasn't sure I could connect my computer and TIVO to it. Does anyone know? Right now the tech said I was probably using a neighbors router to get my programs recorded and connect the DVR.

    Not sure who told you that the WRT54G wouldn't work with the Tivo, I've used that router in the past without any issue.

    Assuming you have the wireless adaptor, you should be able to connect.

    What error message do you get when you try to connect to your wireless network on your Tivo?

The router should be fine.
Use a Compatible Wired or Wireless adapter.

Tivo Series 3 TCD652150 has has a blank display on Tuner 1. Tuner 0 works fine, and Tivo menus will display on Tuner 1 so I assume tuner 1 is not processing the audio/video signal. I feel I'll have...


The Tivo Series 3 uses two CableCards, one for each tuner. It is possible that the CableCard that is responsible for receiving channels on Tuner 1 is defective, has become corrupted, or otherwise is not paired correctly. Call your cable provider and have a tech look at it.

Tivo turns off TV


Hi,

For some reason your Tivo is tripping the internal breaker of your TV. Check the cables and see that they are not damaged and are connected properly (all the cables that hook up to the Tivo). If you have a spare set of cables, try them to see if the TV still turns off.

I can't figure out how to record two shows at once on my DRT400 Humax Series 2 Tivo.


You can't. The unit doesn't have dual tuners, so your stuck with just recording one show at a time. Sorry.

Dvr not connecting to tivo


Try 255.255.255.0 for a subnet mask. That should be the one by default. Usually the network setup on your Tivo should be automatic when it looks for the router. Is the wireless turned on the router?

Directv DVR vs Tivo


I found the manual for that model online, and according to it, the "Live TV" button should function exactly the same way your old Tivo did.

If it's not working correctly, you may want to contact the manufacturer, assuming it's still under warranty.

Tivo and direct tv


No, unfortunately there is not. That tivo only has 1 tuner, so you can only record or watch 1 live program. You can however watch a pre-recorded program while recording a live program. If you have directv, you can step up and get their hr20 dvr. It's not a tivo by any means, but it has 2 tuners so you can record 2 things at once and watch a pre-recorded show. It takes a little while to get used to the interface, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty straightforward.

You can also get an older DVR w/ tivo (hr10) however, it will not get ANY of the new MPEG4 High Def channels that are out there.

If you have an hdtv, then you really should grab an hr20, give directv customer retention a call and ask what they can do for you. You'll need a new slimline dish and they'll come out install it and everything you need for watching off the new satellites and enjoying the new mpeg4 hd channels (the old hd channels are in mpeg2).

Good luck.

You shouldn't unplug the ribbon cable and power on the unit, ever!

Make sure the ribbon cable is 100% in the motherboard, and the front ribbon cable as well, also ensure they aren't damaged. If you can't even get the startup screen, or any type of video output, then your motherboard is most likely shot and I'd see what tivo can do for you.
