    The S1 units emit IR from the front sensor area. This actually caused a lot of problems because reflected signals from here collided with those from the actual emitters and caused a lot of interference and channel changing issues. Series2 models do not do this.

    Using this method as a primary means of channel changing could introduce problems if the reflective surface changes. If you notice a lot of missed changes or dropped digits, you should go back to using the emitters.

    But in the short term, if I wanted this to work, where would I put the cable box in relation to the tivo unit?

    This thread is in regards to setting up channel changing control for set top boxes. I respectfully suggest you start a new thread to get your questions answered in order not to hijack this discussion. Plus it will receive much more attention than posting here.

    Welcome to the TiVolution!

    I'm lost as well. I'm guessing B is Medium. So which is slow and which is fast? There is NO help on the main TIVO site and what the tranlastion is.

    I have a Scientific Atlantic 2200 and 3250HD. I let it automatically configure them and ended up with 00049 instead of 00018. I tried both and 00049 seems to be faster to me. What is way faster is using 4 digit on both of them instead of 3 digit. If you do 3 digit, it waits to see if you are entering a 4th digit before chaning. If you do 4 digit, as soon as the 4 digits are in, it switches immediately. I did not find a "FAST" option. My Dual Tuner TiVo gives me a choice of -A, -B, or -C for both 00018 and 00049. The fastest setup I found was 00049-B and 4 digit.

    This is for Time Warner in New York.

    I've looked through this thread for an hour, so I apologize if I missed the answer. I have a tivo series 2 humax trying to control a motorola dct3416 (HD DVR) via IR. I have tried 10006, 10042, 00093). None of them change the channel. Anyone know this model?

    Nevermind. 100074 does work with the emitters placed 6" away from the sensor as described above for the H2O. Thanks.

    Slower...
    I would start a new thread in this help forum. Let us know how you have it connected up.

    Edit: why didn't you (other than the obvious rea$on$) get an S3 for your HDTV?

    People have been picking up the Series3 for $600-$650 for quite some time now.

    And yes, it's worth it.

    You seem to know a lot about the Dish 322 Dual tunner satellite box. I am not really good with all of this so some of what you said as way over my head but I thought maybe you could have some advice for me. I have Dish Network and have two Dual turnner 322 satellite boxes. Each one actually is now only being used by one tv though. I have the Tivo DVR 80 hour dual turnner, and have been trying to hook it up to the dish satelite. It was all hooked up and the tivo was working going through the setup and all, but with the way it wa hooked up the satellite would not work or come in. I have no idea how to set it up to get it to work being that the Tivo tells you to connect the cable cord that comes out of he wall to the splittler and then use the other two black cords that they give you and hook one to the satellite and one to the the tivo. That leaves te cords on the Dish 322 box just sitting there and I think they said at dish you have to use the seperator and can't use the splitter, and have to have something hooked to the other cords coming out of the box - the satelite 2 and the two on the right of that when facing the box. I also saw no little white bulb to indicate where to put the IR cords on the top and bottom of the box. I am very lost and am really trying to get it to work, and am worried what to do if I can't. is it possible to make it work? Is there a problem with not the satelite 2 part of it? I would really appreciate any help you can give me, and feel free to talk in language like I'm stupid because I really do not know that much about this. thank you so much,

    Anyone know how to configure a Series 2 to control a Zinwell ZAT-600HD ATSC OTA tuner?

    I can't get it to change channels. Which device control codes should I choose on the TiVo side? I know where the "channel changing" configuration menus are on the TiVo, but unfortunately Zinwell isn't listed there.

    The Zinwell ZAT-600HD does have an RS-232 port (stereo mini-jack, just like on the TiVo side); I've randomly tried different device settings, both IR and Serial control; no luck. Can't find any good docs about the Zinwell.

    Thanks in advance.

    Even if you could get the S2 to control this box, you wouldn't be able to set up the S2 to send the correct channel change requests. When a S2 is set up for Antenna, it only knows to utilize the internal tuner, plus it isn't capable of issuing channel changes with a dash.

    This raises the question: Do TiVo have any plans to add support for external ATSC tuners to the Series 2 before the big NTSC switch off in 2009? I would have expected that such a box would be configured in the same way as a cable STB is configured today.
