    Thanks for the reply, LiveBlues.

    Sounds like the TiVo Basic that comes with the Toshiba isn't really that much of an added value, since you pretty much need the TiVo Plus to really benefit from its features. The wireless setup seems kinda tricky from what I've read, so I'm not sure I'd want to try it.

    Can I ask where you bought yours? The cheapest online seller I could find lists it for about $520. Walmart has them on their website for $598, but that's pretty high, and they're not in stock at my local store.

    Thanks again!

    I also answered in the other thread, but in case you don't check it, I bought it from www.buydig.com

    I did some research on them before I ordered it, and everything I could find was positive.

    Delivery was quick, shipping was free and I thought that the $455 price was good. That was about 3 weeks ago.

    TIVO Newbee and tivo community newbee. Like many of the masses I got a Toshiba RS-TX20 for X-mas. Great gift if you are making your list for next year. I am having a problem getting the video to show. I have a Comcast DCT 2000 series cable box and a 50" Hitachi TV, but I can't get the video to show on TV unless I plug the COAX RF cable directly into the Toshiba unit. If I plug it into the Toshiba unit one channel will show, but when changing the channel the channel remains the same and the TIVO directory/skin changes to the next channel. If I run it through the Comcast cable box .... well needless to say the patient has no pulse. Per the directions I connected the Composite A/V (red, white, yellow) cable from the cable box to the Audio/Video input and another Composite A/V (red, white, yellow) cable from the Audio/Video output to the TV.

    For all the veterans I apologize for the reverse progress in the TIVO Revolution, but if you could find it in your heart to set me straight I will keep my brain-less questions to a minimum.

    My RS-TX20 is in the mail!

    I hope to have it tomorrow. It's going to replace my (massively upgraded) Philips 30 hour Series1.

    I'm not sure if I understand your problem. If you have the cable going into the cable box using coax, and then use the composite cables out of the TiVo to the tv, it should work fine. In order to change channels on the cable box, you have to use the IR blaster out of the TiVo to the cable box, in order to allow the TiVo to do the actual channel changes on the cable box.

    I am also new and received the RS-TX20 for Christmas too. I just set it up yesterday and have Comcast. My problem is that the banner on the channel does not match the channel. Also, I am not getting all of my channels through TiVo that I really have. It did not program all of the channels correctly. I have tried everything I can think of and have not had the patience to stay on hold for over 20 minutes to get help from TiVo. Any ideas out there? I know it is related to the cable company selection but I cannot find anywhere to go in and change it. Sorry for such a boring post!

    You will need to run guided setup again to change the cable lineup.

    thank you LiveBlues. Also, I cannot find my tv model name on the list to program the code to use the TiVo remote for power, mute, volume? My manufacturer is Westinghouse and was not on the list. Any thoughts on how to find the code for Westinghouse? Thank you so much.

    I have run the guided set up again, to no avail. I am really stumped. The frustration is with the long, on-hold waits for TiVo and then the message that says, if you have another manufacturer unit, call them not us? I went to Toshiba's website and it did not really offer any support for this topic. If anyone has any ideas I appreciate it. The on-hold wait for Comcast was daunting also, so I will just wait until the busy time is over.

    Stealontgt, it looks like you don't have the IR blaster located properly next to your cable box to have the TiVo box change the channels like LiveBlues described.

    Lday, did you select the correct zip code and cable lineup? For example, digital cable, basic cable? If your lineup is not listed you may have to let TiVo CS know that. Also if the TiVo model is not included then you have to call TiVo CS to help you at as well. I can't recall correctly, but I remember that there was a special code that you type into the remote and it would go through all the codes so it would conceivably catch your TV model code. If I remember, I'll post it.

    OK, my RS-TX60 is on its way! I ordered from buydig.com, as suggested by LiveBlues, so if it arrives broken, I'm coming after you! ...Just kidding. Thanks for the advice. I'll let you know when it arrives.

    TivoDaddy, thanks for picking up the slack. I've been pretty busy today.

    Desperado, I sure hope that it arrives in working condition. ;)

    I just installed an RS-TX60 without complication. Everything seemed to work great at first, but after viewing a movie on DVD, the machine will not reconize ANY DVDs.

    I have reset the DVD settings and re-booted the machine. The next step, I guess, is to re-run guided setup.

    Toshiba support has not been helpful.

    Any ideas or suggestions on how to get this thing to recognize DVDs again?

    When you rebooted, did you do it from the menu, or did you pull the plug?

    If you just restarted, I would try powering it down. Other than that, I don't have any ideas, as I haven't experienced that problem (or any others).

    Just bought and installed a Toshiba RS-TX20. I get grainy pictures on two of the cable channels (30 and 31) while the rest are acceptable. I'm using the bypass (I think that's what it is called) RF outlet on the DVD player to send a cable signal straight to the TV. Channels 30 and 31 look great when I use that signal instead of the TiVo signal. I was wondering if splitting the signal at the DVD player could cause some signal loss for the TiVo side? Would it be better to send two completely separate cables starting at the original point of entry rather than one cable to the DVD and then from DVD to TV?

    Thanks.

    Other ideas about the poor quality for those two channels would be appreciated. (sorry about the double post but I got no response in the help forum from the same post a few days ago.)

    So I finally have my TX20 all set up, and it's indexing now...

    Question for owners: is there any way to eject the DVD tray from the remote, or does it always have to be done via the menus (or physically on the unit).

    I have no idea why, but I always like having it on the remote.
