    I ended up finding the Ir blasters in my basement. They work ok, but I would still like the Serial Port.

    I spoke with a cox representative and he explained it was an economic decision. If I really wanted it I should get my friends together to tell cox "hey please turn on the feature that costs $.20."

    I signed up for cox digital cable specifically for the serial port. When I find the right person at Cox I plan on explaining I could pay $45 a month for basic, which I know will work with Tivo, or pay $110 for digital (and rent their box).

    As best I can tell the DCH series boxes were released in 07/07 to meet the requirements of "707." Somehow I ended up on a whitepaper for one and...that was way over my head.

    I found the IrBlaster worked with a Motorola type Digital Cable box using "005" style channels AND pressing "Enter." I think without enter would work too, but I did it just so it changes quicker.

    On my motorola digital box I chose 005 and yes for enter. I have such an old box and my remote is so old that you did have to hit enter. My parents remote with there DVR is so much different. I just know one of the software updates made my changing go to fast and it was messing up and Tivo helped me get it back to the slower changing and I was fine ever since.

    Good Luck!! Rose

    Just got Tivo this week and didn't realize my hughes hird-e1 wasn't compatable. I can get some channels to work on the remote, but it's mostly a struggle. Since there's no serial port ( and I've tried all IR manuevers - tent, positioning, etc.) Is there anything else I can do?

    Has anyone figured out where or how to get a serial port cable that fits the most common sat box by Starchoice? We have the DSCH505
    Any help would be appreciated.

    cbear70, the instructions I have to disable the 322's screensaver are:
    go into Menu >System Setup >Installation >Updates.

    Hope that helps because it's all I've got.


    chilicasa, looking at Starchoice's website doesn't show me a DSCH505. I only saw user manuals for the DSR505 and didn't see a serial port for it. You may want to post your question in a new thread and include an image to make it easier for someone to help.

    I have the Dish 322 receiver, two of them in fact (4 TVs) and having been using TV with one successfully for years.

    I recently acquired another Tivo unit. My understanding is that I can't use this on one of the two TVs using the second 322 output, which leaves only one TV left I can use it on. However, it sounds like Tivo will not be able to change the channel on that receiver anyway since it isn't on remote channel 1 (my main Tivo Box is using 1).

    Are these assumptions correct, and that basically anyone that uses the 322 receivers will only ever be able to have one channel-changing Tivo? If so, I'll probably just hook it up to another TV and treat it as a VCR. I should be able to transfer recordings between units fine, and pause the program that's currently playing.

    Thanks!

    I have a Series 2 80gb Dual Tuner Tivo box. I'm now thinking about getting DISH for a 2 TV setup. I want to be able to use the Tivo box to record one TV while watching live TV on the other one. My question is which Dish box I should get: 1) a dual tuner 322 box; Or 2) two single tuner 311 boxes (I don't know if Dish will give me this option, though).

    Please advise. Thanks a lot!

    ^^^^Answer: per Pace - use Motorola codes - It works. No thanks are deserving to the following companies: Tivo & Mediacom.

    The forum has conflicting messages about getting the IR Blaster to control Directv model R15-100 DVRs. Has anyone gotten this work? If so, what code(s) was used?

    Thanks

    I don't have any data for Scientific Atlanta IPN603MCG but the common SA codes are 00018 & 10080.

    I also don't have any data for the R15 but 10074 is the latest code we added for DTV models.

    The R15 is a DVR, so why would you want to have another DVR control it?

    If the receiver is set for RF, none will. Set it to IR, and use the standard Sony sat code.
