    The TiVo branded adapter works fine with the RS-TX20/60.

    And the DVD drive in there *IS* dual-layer - always has been. The software just doesn't support it.

    I have tried reading through most of this Toshiba owners thread and have not seen this issue addressed. I have been having a problem with the menu and guide navigation being painfully sluggish. I have lived with it for quite some time thinking that it might be corrected with a software update. So far no luck though. Has anyone else noticed this symptom and if so what have you found out? I have seen threads on other forums mentioning similar symptoms with the Humax DVD DVR recorders which I think are basically the same unit with different hard drive capacities.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    When my RS-TX20 gets sluggish, I reboot it by power cycling it. Sometimes it takes 2 power cycles. I never try to burn DVDs when I see the menu and navigation sluggish. This is where the under powered story started.

    REBOOT. If that doesn't help, reformat the box and start new all over again, provided that you've archived all your saved programs on the hard drive.

    Hope that helps.

    Wired is better. It is faster, as much as 4 times wireless' maximum top speed.
    No worry about cordless phone interfering, both being on the same frequency, oh microwave oven, too.
    TiVOtoGo has to be painfully slow with wireless. 5 to 6 hours to download via wireless. OUCH. Someone jump in who've actually uses wireless to download programs.

    Network connection replaces the phone line.

    Good luck.

    I'm pure wireless on all three TiVos. With the G adapters on my 230 and 565 boxes, I can MRV/TTG medium quality shows faster than realtime (ex. I just TTG'ed tonight's BSG episode (1.2gb) in 30 minutes).

    Hello everyone - I'm glad I found this forum. I recently got my RS-TX20, and it looks like there is lots of useful information here.

    I'm trying trying to consolidate remote controls, so I'm looking for a universal remote that will work with the RS-TX20. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!


    P.S. I tried searching this thread before posting, and didn't find an answer. But since there are so many posts, maybe I missed it. Sorry if this is a reposted question.

    I use the Harmony 676 and like it a lot. Pretty much any recent URC that supports TiVo should work with the TX20.

    well Toshiba has confirmed my unit is dead. I need to get another from BestBuy. Does anyone know what's the best available and secondly, what units come with the free lifetime basic? Thank you very much for responding! :) :up:

    I have a RS TX-20 & really like mine. But I have a few questions:

    1) where can I download an owners manual. I tried the Toshiba site and I don't think they have ever heard of RS TX-20s. I have lost the one that came with mine.

    2) is there some place that tells me how much hard disk (or time) I have before I fill it up.

    I want to plug my linksys router to connect my cable modem with my TX-20. What are the advantages of that? Can I access the recorded programs on the DVR hard drive on my computer?

    I also am considering upgrading to HD TV (I subscribe to basic Road Runner cable). I know I need to adjust the way I connect and therefore need the manual.

    Thanks,

    Jay Dooling

    Mine first TX-20 died also. I had it about 8 months and one day it just died while I was listening to a music CD on it. It would not reboot.

    I purchased mine at Best Buy. I took it back to the service desk. They took it (probably in error) even though I didn't have a store warranty. I wanted to send it back to Toshiba for their warranty. They couldn't fix it & eventually gave me a full refund (store credit).

    Then I bought the last model they had on the floor (no box, no remote or cables) for $300. Best is not carrying them anymore. They seem hard to find.

    Well I am quite pleased with the overall results. I got an LG LRM-519 unit and paid the difference. Here is the RS-TX20 manual at Amazon

    Do you know if that remote will control the LG LRM-519?

    It looks like it does ... I went through the web configuration utility and was able to find the LG LRM-519 model listed.

    This is an oft requested feature and you may see a lot of references to it on this forum as the FSI (free space indicator).

    There is no officially support method of seeing this. The way most of us (without hacked TiVos) do it is to turn on Suggestions. This is what we call a poor-man's FSI. It's not exact, but by watching the number of Suggestions in that folder on your Now Playing List, you can get a basic idea of how much recording time is left on your unit.

    Once your TX20 is on your home network, you won't need a phone line for the daily call anymore. Plus, you can then use features like TiVoToGo to download recordings to your PC and TiVoToComeback to pull recordings from your PC back onto the TiVo for viewing, or MRV (multi-room viewing) if you have more than one TiVo to transfer shows between boxes.
