I have two Series 2 TiVos. I have discontinued cable TV service. I live in the New York City metropolitan area. We have *many* different TV stations, all broadcasting in digital TV format. I have two, fully functional "DIGITALSTREAM" DTX9900 Digital to Analog Converter boxes. I have connected these converters to the TiVos, and can record "manually".
TiVo does not offer an identified IR command code set for this product (box). so I cannot get the connected TiVo to change channels on the converter box.
I contacted TiVo and requested creation of an IR code set for this product, and offered to send the details of the box's IR command set.
TiVo representative "bailed" (that is, demurred) and referred me to this forum.
This lack of support is depressing and annoying.
It appears that TiVo has stopped actively supporting their Series 2 products. I also note the loss of the "universal swivel search" function. When I queried their tech support on this issue, they said, in effect, "we'll get back to you. . ." They never did.
