    Redo "Guided Setup".

    If using SDUI, TiVo Central->Settings & Messages->Restart or Reset System->Repeat Guided Setup.

    If using HDUI, TiVo Central->Settings & Messages->Help->Restart or Reset->Restart or Reset System->Repeat Guided Setup.

    Follow the instructions and choose "Antenna & Cable" or whatever it is, no CableCARD. At some point you should be given the option to scan for channels, including cable channels.

    While I am no means certain that you are unique in doing this, I would be very surprised if you aren't. :)

    I am a big sports enthusiast myself. A lot of times the TV specials are available on DVD for dirt cheap.

    For example...... just checking on amazon.com...... here is a DVD about the Packers which can be delivered to your doorstep for a grand total of $5.10(shipping included)..... perhaps this is the same show(or similar to) what you have recorded on your Dish box?


    Perhaps it would be worth it to you to spend a couple of bucks on some of these?

    Also....... aplectic...... please check your private messages on this board. I just sent you a note.

    OK, I think you guys have convinced me to scrap the idea unless I want to give it one more try.

    I believe that's the Packers show, and if not, it should be somewhere for cheap. I also found some of the other shows like 30 for 30 and A Football Life out there. My wife said she can do without her shows, which aren't a whole lot. And with Netflix and whatever else, she'll have so many choices, she won't know what to do with them.

    So that's a relief. I'm going to install pyTivo and learn how to use that. Once I do that, I should be all set. I've already been recording OTA shows. Love the overlap and Watch List features.

    Is Netflix really required with TiVo? I didn't see anything about that within the TiVo. Hulu Plus looks very good.

    Thank you!

    None of those services is required. I've never used any of them. I do use pyTivo extensively, but then it is free.
