Recording Wrong Channel

Series 2 Tivo Connected To Comcast Motorola Dct 2000 Box Using Serial Cable.

Intermittent Problem (50% Of The Time). Wrong Channel Is Recorded. When I Play The Recorded Program I Can See The Correct Channel # And Then It Jumps Usually To A Lower Number. Same Thing Sometimes Happens When I Use My Tivo Remote. Press 42, It Goes To 42 Then Jumps To 40.

Comcast Suggested Trying IR Blaster, But I'd Rather Use Serial Cable.

Any Suggestions? Thx...

Unfortunately Comcast is right. This problem has been reported before and it usually stems from a firmware update that borks the serial port. IR blaster is your best bet.

well, I guess the blaster isn't too expensive so it's worth a try.

Somewhere else I found a suggestion to set the channel signals at a slower rate, but I don't yet know how to do that.

will reprot back later when i get an IR
