    It is not possible to control a DIRECTV receiver with TiVo built in with a Standalone Series2 unit. Even if you could, it costs more to have monthly service on the SA than it does the combo unit.

    Not sure if that is 100% true - previously I had controlled my Sony SAT-T60 DirecTivo with the same Series 2 SA.

    Cost isn't a concern here....I've got a lifetime on the SA and mostly use it for the HMO, just want to be able to record shows that might get archived to DVD on the SA.
    It sees the DirecTV feed fine and dandy - just haven't been able to control the channels.

    You might want to start a separate thread to gain more visibility on this. It's definitely not a configuration that we test for.

    I got my LVM-37W1 to work by using the first Sony TV code - I think it was 0238.

    Changed home control cable ordering link to point to WeaKnees. Made link for home control cable pin-outs more prominent for those wishing to make their own cables.

    Looking for the IR code for H20 DirecTV Set Top. It's new and nobody seems to know yet (including Tivo tech support).

    Thanks!

    Added DreamBox DM500. I assume for now that TiVo has added support for the DM500 free-to-air satellite receiver, not the DM500C cable box.

    Hey there. I have gotten code 0067 to work with the volume, but I can't find anything that controls the power on my Westinghouse LTV-32W1.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi

    Struggled to get this working but now here it is!

    IR Cable - No other choice
    Sony
    Enter Key - No
    Code 10051-Medium (or Slow even)

    Seemed better this morning after the Series 2 had downloaded and sorted all of the initial data. I have also found that being patient helps when testing the code, let the channel load before changing to the next one!

    WillRegister

    EDIT - After 24 hours this no longer works, resetting it lasts for less than 24 hours :(
    The solution - Directv offered a new box for postage only, Yeah!

    I have Tivo series 2 with Satellite using IR blasters.~

    Newbie. :)

    I have a Mvidea FS4000 FTA receiver. I cannot find compatible Satellite receiver to make channel changing work. :( This receiver is new, it has a serial port in the back but I think is for firmware upgrades only. The only info I have is this website: deovisiontech com . How do I get the IR codes for this receiver. How do I get the codes to my tivo box. I am kind of frustrated. Any help is appreciated. Also, pointing me to the right thread is greatly appreciated.

    I see this a lot in this thread. Can someone tell me what it means when the note says to use APG? (I know it has something to do with Advanced Program Guide but don't understand what that means when setting up RCA boxes).

    thanks

    This is a choice the user must make in pre-7.2 SW when setting up serial control. In 7.2 we integrated the serial setup to look for this automatically.

    It is a setting that has something to do with the serial port protocol.

    TMK DirecTV receivers that support seial channel changing will use either MPG or APG protocol.

    Recently upgraded our dish receiver to a VIP-211, which has MPEG4 support. This is a single tuner receiver; the remote is IR only, no UHF. None of the posted Echostar codes work.

    Has anybody had any luck with this receiver.
