    I've changed "Mode" to TV on the MX-700 Master Remote and back. Turned the whole system off and on. Tried both mute buttons. Never had this problem before in all these years of having TiVo.

    I'm not following what you're talking about. I can't access the system was all installed by professionals, but can't call them until Monday.



  • Tall Pockets Jul 12, 2008

    All the lines are bundled and out of reach. The TiVo has worked perfectly the way it is for over 3 years.
    Doesn't anyone have any more ideas...something that I can understand. Plain speak?

1. Are you feeding in more than one A/V input and therefore does this TiVo have the second A/V modification? If it does have you enabled the second audio input via palmod_config?

2. Have you tried booting the TiVo without the cachecard connected and does it then have sound?

Hope that helps...............

    Try this one:



    Step1
    Press the small, round gray button on the center of your TiVo remote that is labeled "Mute." This is the easiest way to mute all sound.


    Step2Disable the TiVo sounds by going to your Beyond Media menu and following this path: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SnapStream\Beyond Media\Sounds. From here, you can play around with muting specific sounds or replacing annoying sounds with softer ones.

    Step3Utilize the "Slow" option on a TiVo menu to silence sounds during recorded commercials or during unwanted noise. The slow button can be found under the yellow "Pause" button on TiVo remotes. The slow option will not help to mute menu sounds.

    Step4Go to the source of your volume. Most people have their sound hooked up through their television or stereo system. Play with the noise levels on this equipment and you can manipulate the sounds on the TiVo.

    Step5Press down the small green "Menu" button near the bottom of the TiVo remote for more detailed options regarding sound. Find A/V options in the TiVo menu for sound balance changes.

    Step6Program your TiVo remote to control your entire sound system. Press down firmly on the TiVo button and the power button at the same time. Enter the code for the remote to your sound system. Your TiVo then controls both the TV sounds and the stereo sounds.

    Step7Disconnect the red and white sound cables on the TiVo. If all else fails, try watching your TiVo with just the yellow video cable connected.

My TV has terrible sound at volumes where we can actually hear the TV. It gets warbled like the speakers are bad.


The TIVO system is not a problem. I have it and it works fine. Make sure all the cords are plugged and screwed in tight.

Suddenlink tivo apex tv code


Hi- My name is Shannon and I am with Suddenlink. The SL-TiVo remote can be programmed to control the TV and one other A/V device using these steps:

1)
From TiVo Central, select Settings & Messages > Settings > Remote, CableCARD, & Devices > Remote Control.

2) Highlight Part 1: TV power, volume, and mute and press SELECT.

3) The DVR displays a list of television brands. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons and the CHAN DOWN and CHAN UP buttons on the TiVo remote to highlight your TV brand and then press SELECT.

4) The TV Remote Codes screen appears. Follow the instructions on this screen to enter a code into your remote control. If the first code does not work, repeat the instructions to enter the second remote control code, and so forth, until you find a code that works. The remote is now programmed to operate the TV.

5) If also programming to control volume & mute on an A/V receiver for surround sound; Highlight Part 2: A/V volume and mute and press SELECT.

6) The DVR displays a list of audio/video receiver brands. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW buttons and the CHAN DOWN and CHAN UP buttons on the TiVo remote to highlight your receiver brand and then press SELECT.

7) The AV Remote Codes screen appears.

Follow the instructions on this screen to enter a code into your remote control. If the first code does not work, repeat the instructions to enter the second remote control code, and so forth, until you find a code that works. The remote is now programmed to operate the receiver.

The TiVo remote will now turn the TV on/off and switch inputs and adjust the volume and mute the audio on the receiver.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at shannon-AT-suddenlink-DOT-com. Thanks!

Sound problem


If sound works from a video the audio circuit is ok--leaves only that something in TV mode is set wrong---possible but not real likely a headphone jack issue or in menu set may have a feature for turning speakers off in that mode or look to see if set has the SAP mode on the remote.

If using a box of some kind issue can also be coming from it.

Need code to use for the tivo remote


Hello,

Push the TiVo button on the remote. Then push "Messages and Settings," followed by "Settings," and finally press "Remote Control." This will show you the three areas of the remote that are programmable. "TV Power, Volume and Mute," is one section. "AV Volume and Mute," is the second section. The final section is "TV Input."

Pick "TV Power, Volume, and Mute" by pushing right on the direction pad of the remote. This will open up a list of all the brand names of TV that exist. You will find most TV brands will be there.

Find your brand of television and select that option. If your brand is not there, simply go to the TiVo webpage and under "Setup and Support" you will find others who have experience this issue. There you will find a code for your TV. This happens sometimes when the TV is a lesser known brand.

Hold down the button you are programming (i.e. TV Power) for 5 seconds until the red light on top stays on. Then enter one of the codes on the screen.

Push the newly programmable button to test its functionality. If it does not work, repeat the steps with all the possible codes available. One of the codes will work.

Push "Live TV" at this point to watch television.

Use the manual which came with your TiVo in addition to this guide. In the front of the booklet will be a starter guide, which will lead you through the steps necessary to set up your remote for optimum use.

No sound


If you know that you do not have a cabling problem, then it sounds like a bad motherboard. If you have TiVo lifetime service, you should consider a flat-fee repair service such as the one here.

Samsung flatscreen has no sound


I had the same problem and I finally got in touch with Samsung and they told me that it must be something with the satellite receiver or Tivo box I have connected to the TV, since the sound was working in DVD mode.  I reset both DirecTV receiver and Tivo box and now the sound is working again.  I guess I should have done them one at a time so I'd know which one caused the problem.  But, give it a try, it might work for you, too.

Volume and mute buttons suddenly stopped working


Try changing the batteries. Most times the "tivo" buttons will work but the "tv" buttons will stop working when the batteries are low.

If you have done that, go back into settings and program the remote again for your tv, then give it a shot.
