    Are you absolutely positive? I don't think so.. I think in this respect, S1 and S2 are identical.

    The S1s don't have any way to access the IR codes to control a converter even though they're in its database. The 649 and rare 542 Series 2s fall into the same category since they were buit as "cable only".

    With the right converter box you can work around it to some degree by lying to the TiVo. Insignia and Zenith converters happen to use the same IR codes as an LG satellite box, and Apex converters will work on one of the codes for a Hughes cable or satellite box.
