    I am looking for a way to use the INPUT button on my TiVo remote with my Mitsu 55813.

    I can use the INPUT button to switch between all of my inputs but my TV requires a SELECT or OK to confirm selection.

    How do I do that with my TiVo remote? I have tried SELECT and ENTER and it does not work. What do I need to do?

    In answer to Morris Herman about TV input...

    try to set the Mits TV to non NetCommand (NC) mode

    1. Move the slide switch at the top of the
    Mits remote to the TV layer.
    2. Press and hold the POWER button on the
    remote control.
    3. Enter the three digit code of 000, and then
    release the POWER button on the remote

    This may enable the TV input button on the tivo remote to toggle to different inputs without the NC menus. Refer to your manual if this does not work and you wish to set it back to NC mode. I think the code is 197 or 935.

    Having checked these, can't see answer to my problem. Was running TiVo with no problems using a multiscart switcher plugged into the Aux scart socket so I could switch from Video to DVD without having to keep switching scarts. Unfortunately having just got a Freeview box (Bush - from a remark in the catalogue I think its a Goodmans clone) - this has to use the Aux scart. Is there any way I can still use my scart switcher & the Freeview box?
    Thanks to anyone who can help! CH

    I wanted to point out that the following link appears to have gone bad:

    Cable/Satellite Box Compatibility & Codes List


    (Please note my intentional typos in the URL (extra line breaks), as the vBulletin system says I can't post a URL until after I make 5 posts... So I had to munge it up. I guess the system forgot all the posts I made years ago...)

    This should not be so tough. After around a month, I finally got upgraded to 7.1a and tried to transfer a show to my computer. Got around 1 minute and then it was interrupted. When I go to my TIVO, it shows no network adapter. Based on some other threads, I changed the dynamic IP to a statis IP. This did not seem to help, I continue to lose connectivity to the network adapter. The adapter is a Netgear MA111, which is definitely supported (even has a TIVO icon on the box). I unplug and replug the USB and it regains connectivity, but the transfer does not go any further.

    I tried using the web server stuff from other threads. I see the Now Playing on the PC but when I try to download, it times out and nothing happens.

    Perhaps this is just not ready for prime time, but seems that others are successful. Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated. I find this to be extremely frustrating.

    Thanks a lot.

    I think I put the above question in the wrong thread. Sorry about that, I started a new thread under a different section.

    Another Kudo for this great list, and an apology for not being able to contribute.

    I have answered a lot of questions on filters and I wish I had a good suggestion for on filter/codec advice. It is one area of weakness in this excellent list.

    One of the largest source of problems I see on the TTG forum concern problems associated with incompatible DirestShow filters, or problems that would be solved through more intimate knowlege of filters. The ultimate source of these problems are never in Tivo software, but as far as the user can be expected to understand, they never had the observed problem until they started playing .tivo's- therefore they make the understandible inference it is some sort of Tivo problem, so they come here rather than the Sonic, Microsoft, or Nero sites which in any case provide little information of perceptible relevance to their problem at hand.

    "How to" lists are difficult to compose because of the combinatorial possibilities between multiple filters and video software interactions. Even for a help line technician, it would be a daunting task to construct a good decision tree for guiding a user through trouble shooting steps. There are some rules of thumb but they only work 90% of the time. For example- simply installying Tivo recommended codecs won't work in all cases because they may not be assigned the highest priority. Unistalling all codecs and only installing a recommended codec is not workable either because this will disable many desktop video applications or games.

    Lastly, there is some dodgy territory when you start talking about graphedit. It is the best way I know to give naive users a visual clue about what is going on under the hood, but some good faq type sites I have for that are, shall we say, dangerously close to the dark side of the force.

    I'll see if we on the TTG forum can't concoct a reasonable enough cookie cutter set of instructions for the most common problems and "90%" solutions.

    Since we're getting an increasing number of questions on hooking up HD cable boxes, I've added links to detailed posts on HD cable box wiring.

    Also added recent report that temporarily configuring for demo mode may help in resetting a TiVo DVR to allow initial guided setup over broadband.

    There seem to be a number of broken links in this FAQ. Any chance someone in charge of the FAQ could update?
