Grandpa66@sbcglobal does not know if this is a TiVo or my DVD player. I am working off a satilite receiver to the DVD player. When I display channels with Satilie remote it will display channels up to 9999. When I display menu on DVD remote it only goes up to 400 or 500. If ikey in a channel manually like 640 it will go to this channel. I would like to find out if there is a fix or software update. Thanks for any and all effort that will be put into this problem.Send reply to above E-Mail address. If yo need me to answer any issues that I did not cover please feel free to contact me. I will be glad to answer any question.

You may have to set the channel 3/4 switch on the lower right rear of your TiVo to match the output setting of your Apex converter. If your Apex converter is equipped for L/R audio and video output you will get better results using a three-conductor cable to connect to your TiVo.
Missing channels are a sure sign that your CableCard is not paired correctly or is defective. Sometimes, the issue can be as simple as a clerical error, where the serial number of the CableCard was not entered correctly into your cable provider's system. Call your cable company and have a tech come out to take a look at your CableCard configuration.
Try this first...Press the TiVo button at the top center of the Remote, then > Messages & Settings > Restart or Reset System > Repeat Guided Setup and then follow the onscreen instructions from there.
This should load your new channel lineup into your TiVo.
If all the channels are still not recognized... Press the TiVo button at the top center of the remote, then > Messages & Settings > Settings > Channels > Channel List and then make sure all of the channels you receive are checked.
I believe that you are already on the right path, your tivo will still be assuming that you are running off the cable box plus you watch dancing with the stars for five minutes one time just to see Warren Sapp attempt to dance and now all of a sudden it wants to record every single piece of televison with dance in the title or discription, but I'm not bitter.
Just re-accomplish the set up and let it know that you are no longer running a cable box. Also tell it that ditching you friday night to hang with it's old high school buddies was so not cool.
Receivers generally cannot or will not convert from one input type to a different output. That's not to say there may not be some high end models around that do that.
I have this receiver and have it setup as follows. Monitor out Component, S-Video, and the Composite video channel (since I have surround sound I have no interest in getting audio to the TV since I keep its speakers off anyways) to their different inputs on the TV. Warning on some TV's if you plug in S-Video you cannot then use composite on that same input channel as it will override and disable the composite. Then you only need to choose the appropriate input on the TV when you switch sources. In my case Tivo is S-Video, DVD is component, and most of my older video games and VCR are composite.
Having a TV that allows you to change the labels for the input channels is helpful with teaching others that may be less adept, or a snazzy remote that you can program to do everything at once.
