    Hello. I have an ADB 3800w box provided with my FTTH through my local phone co-op. My Tivo is a dual tuner series 2. I am having problems getting the IR code for this box... I tried the Amino box codes in channel set up for my remote and they work intermittently. Biggest probles are with going to channel 2 instead of 102 or 130 instead of 3 along with other channel difficulties. I understand I can only use this Tivo as a single channel recorder because the ADB box is set up as only a single tuner and how would i be able to split an ethernet TV signal connection anyway?

    If I can get the correct IR codes to use I will be happy enough with just using single channel recording, I wondered if it is possible to use two boxes to get dual tuner capability? Run the one into Tivo and the other directly to the TV.

    Any clues or helpful information would be appreciated.....

    Use the Advanced Setup option and try using code 10073. This isn't a common model so we don't have much experience with it. Make very sure you have the IR sensor located, and don't forget to try "Yes" and "No" for the "Enter Key" setting.

    I am trying 10073 A as of now. It seems to work OK with all of the channels 2-130, but if I input channel 311 to go to a music station it goes to channel 2 (there is no channel 1). I am testing it with programmed recordings this afternoon. If it works reliabley I honestly don't care about the music channels. I will update my success or failure with 10073A IR code.

    But I would like some input on any possible workaround to possibly get to use the dual tuner capability. If that is not appropriate for this thread please advise. Thanks.

    Hi, I have a VIP222K dual receiver and a Humax DRT-800. I want to have the Humax change the channel on my 2nd receiver. The owners manual says that the second receiver is controlled by both UHF and IR signals. I went through the guided setup and none of the Humax preprogrammed settings worked on receiver 2. I did find settings that worked on receiver 1 so I know the IR blasters are working. Does anyone know which code will work for me? Thanks in advance.

    You have to use output #1 as it is the one controlled by IR. IR code 10001 will work for this model.

    I must be misinterpreting what I am reading in the manual. In any case, I can't get the Humax to control output 2 with the IR blasters. Do you think that the IR to RF adapter that Dish sells may work for me in this application? (I would much rather use output 2 for recording) Thanks

    Output 2 is only for RF. I cannot vouch for the converter since it is a piece of equipment that we do not provide support for. YMMV. Good luck.

    Ipswich,...
    In the thread, Gary Sargent's list is cited, but it's dated 2007.
    Where is there a modern list of terrestrial STBs?

    I wasn't sure where to put this- but I have a dish network vip 211k and a tivo series 2 single tuner. I couldn't get tivo to change channels to save my life NO codes worked period.

    googling my brains out, going crazy i found an old archived tivo forum thread that said if the dish network box was too close to the tivo, channel changing wouldn't work. The archived forum thread post said that if tivo sensed another IR close by it didn't work.

    When i moved the dish network box away from the tivo box the 10001-b code worked perfectly.

    i can't post links because i've not posted 5 times oh well. dartboard was the name of the poster that posted the info.

    You won't get help with that here. Your issue us up to the providers invlolved.
    Motorola ACC should be able to help you, but might not be able to contractually do what you want.

    Hi, I am trying to find a TIVO IR code for an ADB 5810WX box or ADB 2500W, either one. My new provider uses these boxes, and I am not having a lot of luck. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Has anyone had any luck with serial control of Motorola DCX3200 boxes from Series 2 Tivos? The Time Warner guy left me two of the DCXs today and I'm not sure if its even possible? Thank you! Mike

    The functionality hasn't been test at TiVo since the DCT2xxx models and might not be present on newer models. You might want to start a new thread with the proper title to get more interest as not everyone follows a big thread that is focused mostly on IR codes.

    Info for the serial control requirements are listed in the Changing channels on a DCT2000 series cable box knowledge article.

    Keep in mind that even if those requirements are met, the providers may turn that bit off.

    the last link is broken...

    i am trying to figure out what i should do. i have a DCT2000 but i am told i could exchange it for a DCT2500. i also have a series2 tivo.

    would the serial connection work for me? is it better than one of those direct IR cables you can get on ebay that people use with DTAs?

    Jerry thank you! I realized after posting that the DCX3200 box has an "Ext IR" input (not output) on the back, I think I'm next going to try connecting the Series 2 IR out to the Ext IR in on the DCT and see what I get.
