I just got a DT Tivo and in the channel list instructions it states that you should choose the basic cable channels vs the cable box channels when listing which channels you receive.
My Basic cable (analog) channels look like crap and i would much rather have the Tivo default to choose the Box channels, but if i dont choose the basic cable channels in the channel list i really cant take advantage of the DT.
I was recording VH-1 rock honors this evening on Digital Cable box channel 19
I switched tuners and a "ghosty" CBS (channel 2) came on. I tried to change to any other channel but because i have listed only Box channels, the Tivo will not change the channel without warning me it will stop the other Box recording.
I can't have the 2-13 channels as Analog cable -- they're unwatchable.
which brings another question -- most cable companies will not support the basic cable lines -- are most peoples lines pretty bad as well????
But my main question:
Is there a way to change the way Tivo wants to default to specific channels.
I must say, this whole DT thing is a bit Kludgy....
