I just set up my TiVo Series 2 single tuner TiVo with basic cable and a digital converter box. I chose "cable without a box." I actually made it through Guided Setup (which proved difficult before). I was so excited, then found that I could not watch live TV. The message "searching for signal on: basic cable in." shows up on every channel.
It will only show one channel. Channel 4. This is the same channel the converter box is set to. It is showing the ABC channel when the TiVo guide thinks its HSN.
The wiring is as follows:
Cable from wall->digital converter box
Cable from box->TiVo
AV Cord from TiVo-> TV
I then tried to set it up as "antenna with box." This gave me what looked like the option to change channels, but the same channel showed up each time I "changed" the channel.
Side note: this is a used TiVo purchased from eBay. The TV I'm connecting it to has been previously used with the digital converter box with no issues.
I'm at a loss of what to do next. I'm assuming I just need to pick the correct setup option. What would that be for basic cable with a digital converter box?
If you think it's something besides that, let me know any other suggestions. Please! Kinda ready to pull my hair out
