    Ask in the UK section.

    Since this is a UK box, you'll be working with a Series1. Unfortunately there isn't an easy way to test all the codes on those models. You won't be able to add the IR, so the only option left is to go through each manufacturer one by one to test the codes. We didn't come up with a way to access all codes in one screen until a much later SW version in Series2.

    I don't have any experience with the UK boxes so I can't even send you in a general direction. I have no idea if the Woolworth codes might be similar to anything else already on file.

    Does anyone knows the codes that will drive a Venturer STB7766G Digital to Analog converter? I have a Series 1 Tivo and while the guide obviously doesn't list all of the digital channels, the quality on the primary channel (xx-1) is so much better that I would like to record from that.

    10093 is a new code we've captured for this model, but I'm not sure you can access it from a Series1 as that manfuacturer won't be visible to you. Unfortunately the S1 interface doesn't let you choose a random code manually.

    Hi, I just bought a tivo series 2. I have a Directv D12-300 receiver. Which channel changing cable I have to use with my satellite? the IR cable or should I buy a home control connector?

    thank you

    What is a "home control connector"?

    Is this something you read about in TiVo literature (a term I'm not familar with), or is it something else?

    I would recommend the Peterson Technology USB TV Translator.

    "Home Control" is DirecTV's term for the serial connector on some of their older DirecTV boxes, in the form of a 4P4C modular connector, the same as a telephone handset uses. AFAIK, the D10 series was the last to be equipped with them, after that they used USB.

    To use a DirecTV receiver with the HC jack, you'd get a special cable with a 1/8" plug for the TiVo side, and the 4P4C for the DirecTV side. TiVo sells them on their store, plus you can get ones from eBay sellers, or make your own.

    Does anyone have the code for the ADB 5810WX cable box? This is provided by Hotwire Communications.

    Aside from the fact that this is a DVR, we have no experience with this make/model.

    Does anyone know which Directv boxes (sony, rca, hughes, etc.) have our local channels on the LOW numbers (2,5,7, etc) and not the high numbers(961, 962, etc)? My sony sat-a65 doesn't work properly all the time with the serial cable and the IR is too slow & unreliable. I want to find a new/used box that accepts the serial or home control cable for tivo and has the correct local channels. (I don't want to have to teach my family that channel 2 is now 961, etc)
    Thank you!

    That's probably a question best posed to DTV directly. We haven't tracked which models tune to locals in the low range.

    AFAIK, the Plus boxes, which are the ones launched in the 1998/99 era, and included multi satellite capability, also have local channel number mapping, as well as any models subsequent to that era. In my junk pile, I have an RCA DRD420RE, which fits that description, plus has Home Control.

    For the Scientific Atlanta Explorer 1840 (used by Rogers in Canada), a member wrote me to recommend use of code 10018-C and furthermore advised to place the TiVo IR emitter "to the right of the clock under the Guide button give or take a millimeter or 2".

    I have a receiver that requires APG, but I can't find here what that actually is. What does APG stand for, if anything? Apologies.

    Advanced Program Guide. Amongst other things, it defines the serial protocol used to control the DirecTV box.

    Hi,

    My first post, i am in Oman and have a DC 2000 digital sat receiver, i can recieve hotbird, nilesat and arabsat. Every six months or so i have to get the box reloaded with the new codes, it takes seconds as you know, but i pay the equivelant of 10 pounds for the pleasure. Is there anyway that i can do this my self, if so what site do i need to visit? The one they use out here is an arab one called alnakash, i think but i have been unable to locate it. Any help will be much appreciated

    I've looked for 2 days now to find out if I can use my Tivo Series 2 to control the tuner on my Philips DVDR 3506. Any thoughts? I've gotten into the Advanced Setup, but none of the 5-digit IR codes I've tried so far have worked. Any help would be appreciated.
