    HarperVision TiVo's Italian Cuz!

    As you can see, I suggested this route many posts ago, knowing this is a re-modulated hybrid satellite/cable/OTA commercial system, a la' LodgeNet, etc. Why you ran this poor fellow through the wringer is beyond me. The Premiere could also work as suggested but the main issue could be if he has QAM (digital) channels which would then mean he'd need a cablecard to map channels correctly, and I highly doubt BulkTV supports cablecards. If they're all analog, he may be ok "if" as you say, TiVo has the correct lineup.

    His best bet is actually a PC with windows media center and a tuner that supports ATSC, analog and QAM channels because he can download any area guide and then customize and remap the channels within the guide as he sees fit. This solution may be too complicated to setup and maintain though.

    Previously it was possible to link a TiVo to Zap2it. This functionality has become broken more recently. Zap2it now says it won't work, which is true because it doesn't.

    Sorry we are all raining on your parade :(

    I keep forgetting to come back and thank y'all for your help. And, I'm not a he but a she, born this way. The nickname Squirrel was given to me fifteen years ago due to (****over 21 only, sorry y'all****). ;)

    I'm close to getting my TiVo. Phone line activated within twenty hours. New remote auctions on eBay have possibilities. Just finalizing the deal and making sure it will work here.
