Hey Guys,

I'm new here, but I think I know why the series 3 can't tune certain channels but the newer Tivos can. All new channels that Verizon adds from now on will be MPEG-4. I would guess that 3 Series Tivos can't decode MPEG-4 so that is why you can not see these particular stations. It does not affect too many channels as of now (Listed them below) but I've been told that any new additions will also be MPEG-4. Hope this helps!

MPEG-4 Verizon FIOS Stations:

SD Channels 36, 54, 84, 100, 101, 105, 125
HD Channels 558, 571, 592, 596, 597, 598, 599, 633, 674, 676, 695, 735, 744, 906, 907, 912, 913, 923, 924, 926, 928, 929

It also includes all the MLB, NBA, NHL and Soccer League season pass channels and many of the Spanish Language channels.

Your assumption is correct. TiVo series 3 units cannot, as presently formatted, receive MPEG-4 channels. Reportedly it is software related based on prior threads but TiVo will not be pushing any further updates to allow for this (older generation equipment).

Ok, good to hear! I wasn't sure that was clearly stated in the forum so I wanted to clear it up some. Thanks!
