    I can't give you a direct link to the site since it's part of the Harmony configuration web site (and is thus password protected specific to your own account). I just logged in as myself and added a new device to my profile, looking for your LG model.

    You can set up your own account, though, and take a test drive of the configuration web site here. You can set everything up, and if you do end up purchasing the remote, you can convert your test account to a real one and then download the settings to your new remote.

    Thanks, just went thru! Looks good! Geez, I saw just a couple weeks ago a very hot deal on the 880 and passed...now I find myself in the market due to the crappy remote with the LG unit wich I put in the basement cause Tivo is working sweet!! I'll have to see about getting a 676 now. Thanks again for the useful input/info! :up:

    Geez, this thread seems like a ghost town!! I choose medium quality recording but it always asks to record at best quality everytime? what gives? All my shows are then too large for 1 dvd to burn to. This problem seems like it might be a bug embedded in the software?? any thoughts?? TIA :confused:

    This is just a guess, but it sounds to me like you're primarily recording shows by switching to a channel with a live show playing, and then hitting the record button. TiVo will always suggest you record the show in best quality in this case, since the live TV buffer is always in best quality and recording the entire program in best is the only way to preserve the live TV buffer (i.e. the portion of the show that's already been recorded).

    You can go to other options and change the recording quality, but it'll warn you that the already-recorded portion will be lost.

    A far better solution is to tell the TiVo what to record in advance, preferably by using season passes and wishlists (but I see from your past posts that you may be using TiVo Basic, which means you don't have these options; you can still, however, schedule manual recordings in advance).

    Thanks Drew, your assumptions above are exactly correct :eek: ! I do love Tivo, esp. since getting rid of those cable boxes (with the pesky remote habits I had) life is much better now since using only the Tivo remote which controls everything perfectly now! I always seem to start recording from the buffer too :( I guess I have to tweak "my own" habits instaed of Tivo's LOL! Thanks for the info.! :up:

    Would like my Tivo Settings to revert back to No cable box option.

    My Tivo Toshiba tx20 is setup for a Cable Box, I would like to go back to using no cable box, internal tuner. I was not able to figure how to disable this option. The only option is another cable box.

    Yea, that's what I had to do too and now works even better now without extra cable box! :D Have to start the whole process over which isn't bad at all though...

    Yo! Just bought an RS-TX20 and looking forward to using it. Two Questions, please...
    1. Does the new Tivo Wireless Adapter work with this unit?
    2. Is there anything I need to know to hook this up with a Time-Warner cable box (Pioneer)?
    Thanks a bunch.

    Hi,

    My TX-20 is freezing up at random (twice now). It either requires a reboot or reboots itself (and goes through the 5 minute welcome process). All is well after the reboot.

    Has anyone else had this problem? I've seen a couple of posts, but no resolution. Could it be a bad hard-drive? Shoudl I re-format the TiVo?

    I'm 6 months out from buying it, so I'm stuck mailing it back under the limited 1 year warranty if it comes to it (meaning I paying shipping and labor on replaced parts). I'm not unwilling to replace the hard-drive myself if it comes to it.

    Thanks in advance for any hard earned advice you might have!

    Bill

    Bill i have had the same problem from time to time...maybe once every month or two...it is definitely a pain when it happens if something is taping....because you lose everything during the 5 minute booting cycle....i doubt that it is anything systemically wrong with your unit....probably just a little quirk....mine happens typically if i am in the burning process

    Thanks, Ber. Happened during the Oscars on Sunday, which was a bummer because that was a perfect TiVo show for me. Sat down an hour and a half late, FF thru commercials, bad acceptance speeches, awards I don't care about, drawn out montages, weak comedy bits, songs by Dolly Parton, lifetime achievement awards...and watched most of the show in an hour. Until the TiVo crapped out.

    I'll hang tight and hope it is just a quirk. I've got a few months until my 1 year warranty is up.

    Thanks!

    I bought this unit in December. I have it hooked to a dish network receiver. I continually get audio static. When the Toshiba is out of the system audio is ok. When the Tivo is unplugged and reset, the staic goes away for about five minutes and then returns. Changed cables, moved unit away from Dish receiver...no help.

    Any help would be appreciated, Toshiba says disconnect and reset...no help.

    Thanks

    Hi everybody, I had a pioneer DVR-533H-S with the T.V. Guide feature which quit working when the guide was upgraded to T.V. Guide 8. I was getting the guide over the air from a local t.v. station as I do not have cable. I am thinking of getting a Toshiba RS-TX20 with the basic Tivo. I understand that tivo uses a phone line. Is that for their program guide? Will it work with just the over the air stations? Thanks

    Yes, the TX20 will use your phone line for daily calls to download program Guide data and things like software updates. If you have a home network, you could also connect it to that instead of using your phone line.

    And yes, the TX20 supports just OTA (antenna) stations along with cable, satellite, etc.

    I recorded the 2-hour March 6th program "24" but can't get it to save to DVD. I ge the message "Failure to save to DVD--Internal Error". I tried two different discs (discs that I have recorded other programs to with no problem). Any suggestions?

    I've had a TX20 since it came to the market well over a year ago. No problems. I've used it with the phone line and the Home Network. It is an excellent product. And, the DVD Burning function works in the background, so you can use the other Tivo functions while it is burning a DVD.

    Good Luck!

    Is it possible to back-up the RX20 hard drive? Knowing this information by Wednesday would be great as its going to play a major role in my choice of lifetime service.

    Thanks
