    I posted this on Tivo's forum with no answer yet. Thought someone here could help.
    -----------

    The last Presidential debate, 10/3, I had set-up tivo to record the Fox News Channel (channel number 265) coverage to record. Without any changes by anyone in our household, tivo changed my scheduled recording to record the CNBC (channel number 266) coverage of the debate.

    This same thing has now happened again. I had scheduled to have the VP debate coverage for tonight to record on Fox News Channel. It again changed the coverage of the debate to record on our local CBS network (channel number 2 - which by the way I have marked as a channel we do not receive because it is SD).

    Why is tivo choosing which channel I should watch the debates on?

    What does your recording history say?

    The recording history lists nothing about a change to my two original FNC recordings that were to take place on 10/3 and 10/11.

    What model Tivo? Sounds like a problem when changing channels that the numbers aren't being entered correctly. Hence ending on channel 2, the 65 failed to be recognized.

    I've been trying to come up with some kind of pattern. The first change was channel FNC 265 to CNBC 266 and the second was FNC 265 to CBS 2. The second is the one that really confuses me. I have channel 2 marked as a channel I do not receive because it's broadcast in SD not HD (the CBS affiliate broadcasts in HD on channel 189).

    Do you have any relatives who are rabidly anti-conservative or anti-Murdoch?

    Any chance of a remote control with a stuck button or maybe another device like a back lit tv giving off IR interference?
