    I am attempting to use a tivo without the tivo service to manually record tv shows.

    We have cable tv without a cable tv box.

    When I attempt to change channels using the tivo, the on screen display for the tivo shows the channel has changed, but it does not change.When I attempt to change the channels with the tv remote, none of the channels come in or the ones that do act like I have the wrong imput selected (like when you have a vcr hooked up and you have the wrong imput selected TV/VCR).

    I read that the IR Cable that came with the tivo (which I do not have) is only if you have a cable or satillite box to change channels.

    I have the cable from the cable company going into the tivo, the composite cables are hooked up between the tivo and the tv.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Redo guided setup and make sure you select no cable box present. The unit may have to dial-in so you may need a telephone line temporarily.
