    I've noticed that v7.2 adds four digit support. I ran through the channel changing 'wizard' and it's working great for my SA4200's. Looks like it's using 4 digits, no Enter and fast speed. Previously I was using 3 digits with an Enter.

    What codes are people using for the DCT6412. I'm having trouble getting it to consistently tune to the correct channel after trying multiple different codes. Thanks in advance.

    So the 7.2 Tivo software fixes the problems with the D10-100? This is isn't mentioned in the compatibility list under the Thompson D10.

    Does anyone have any technical details as to what changed to break serial control compatibility with the Sony HD300? Maybe I could reprogram the TV Translator to fix it.

    I am one that has been having trouble with the channel changing since updates to 7.2xxxx. I have the Hughes HTL-HD D* receiver and the serial port was disabled. I changed to IR and had >90% failure. I built a tent and reduced the failure to about 10%. I have now purchased and installed Xantech 282M Infrared Mouse IR Emitters with the MS1 shield and while I have not exerienced a change in failure, it looks much better.

    I purchased the emitters on eBay here: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Xantech-282...ryZ50587QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Ordered them on 9/22 (late in the day) and they arrived on 9/28. Not bad at all and shipping was only $3 for 4 of them.

    Does the 7.2 software no longer work correctly with the Sony HD300 via serial? I was considering buying one of these receivers as I upgrade to HD, but if this no longer works and have to use the IR, I may just consider going to the Directv HD/Tivo receiver. I would rather be able to buy the HD300 unit. I had put a lot of research into this unit, and was going to be my main purchase. But sounds like I'll have to scrap those plans thanks to the Tivo developers.

    The HD300 is one of the receivers that had the serial connection disabled as a result of v7.2xxxx . The only problem with the DirectTV HD receiver is that, to the best of my knowledge, it will not support MRV, TiVoToGo or Home Media.

    This is a 37" Westinghouse 37" LCD monitor. Anyone find a working code for this model? No, 0067 does not work.

    TIA.

    I hope I'm not posting this in an inappropriate thread, but I've been unable to find my answer so far.

    I have two tivos (and two cable boxes) hooked up to my PiP tv. Most of the time things are fine, but for some reason on occasion when one tivo is changing the channel to record something, both cable boxes switch to that channel. Result -- 30 minutes of Charmed followed by 30 minutes of the HBO program I'm trying to record on the other tivo. Anyone know how to fix this? One box is Scientific Atlanta 3250, the other S.A. 2200

    IR signals can bounce quite a bit. Both of your cable boxes are responding to IR from one unit's channel change. The only way to solve this is to isolate each cable box so that it only receives commands from the appropriate emitters.

    You can do this by blocking off the front of the unit with whatever thick material you can find. We also document this as an IR tent here: http://customersupport.tivo.com/knowbase/root/public/tv1069.htm?

    I do not have the HD Hughes reciever. Mine is the older GAEB0 reciever.
    This unit worked FLAWLESSLY until the 7.2 upgrade (last week). Ever since the upgrade, the channels just will not change correctly NO MATTER WHAT CODE and SPEED i use. I have tried every code I've seen mention of that supposedly works with this box and none do so correctly. I even built the IR tent and it did not decrease the errors one bit.

    Basically, since the 7.2 upgrade, my Tivo is USELESS. It won't change channels and even if I change them with the DTV box remote, the Tivo still trieds to change to the channel for recording.....and doesn't change to the right channel.

    TIVO: PLEASE HELP! I bought this box in good faith and with NOTHING changed on my end (other than your 7.2 upgrade), your TIVO no longer works....where two weeks ago, it worked flawlessly with NO changes in codes, locations, IR tents, etc.

    Would the Xantech 282M Infrared Mouse IR Emitter & MS1 Shield make the TIVO changing channels problem go away?

    I did purchase the serial cables (3.5mm 1 foot with 2.5mm adapter) but the 7.2 software does not recognize it and will not let me do an "advanced" setup....it forces you to go through it's own tests which always fail with the serial cable setup.

    Yours would be the first GAEBO that I've personally heard of having IR problems related to the SW upgrade. The IR protocols have not been changed, and AFAIK this model does not support serial.

    Oddly enough, our agents say that they've had better results with code 10020 using only one emitter for this model....sticking out approx 1 1/2" directly in front of the sensor, which is to the right of "Select". The picture I'm looking at shows the sensor a bit lower than center so I'm assuming the best result is to have the emitter on the bottom.

    If you find that using the Recommended Setup option is not working for you, you can enter the code directly using Advanced Setup.
    http://customersupport.tivo.com/knowbase/root/public/tv103302.htm?

    From what little I know of the products, using the Xantech emitter and shield has a chance of helping because it puts the emitter directly over the sensor and shields it from outside interference, but a proper IR tent would've had the same shielding effect.

    Jerry,

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

    Taking away the upper emitter seems to have done the trick. I also pulled the bottom one out to a full 1.5" and made sure it was lined up straight with the infrared port. With the same code (00072b), it now is changing just fine. I'll play with the different codes, but this one seems to be working flawlessly now.

    Now if I could just find all the shows from last week that didn't get taped due to being on teh wrong channel! LOL

    Jim

    PS...the moderator of this thread should change that first post so that others know about this issue with the GAEB0.....

    And thank you for bringing this issue up.

    On the cable option mentioned in the notes, I cannot recommend this procedure since
    1. there's not been sufficient confirmation that it works and
    2. in general, connecting TiVo DVR's to IR ports on cable/satellite boxes does run some risk of damage to both the DVR and the cable/satellite box.
    However, if you are willing to try it at your own risk, the cable would need to be attached to the TiVo DVR's IR port, not the serial port, and you would need to select the IR option, not serial. If you do go ahead and try it, please let me know the results so that I can remove that paragraph from the notes if it does not actually work.

    Thanks again. :)

    hi, folks.
    I've got a SA 40hr series2 tivo and a samsung directivo model 4080.
    I'm trying to get the IR blasters set up so the SA tivo can control the Samsung - and am having some problems.
    Has anyone had any luck with the Samsung 4080?
    I haven't tried building a tent...yet - hoping I don't have to do that...

    Are there certain Sat boxes the tivo just can not control?

    Thanks in advance!
