    Have a S4080R with Directv service. I get an error message looking for sattelite 2. I have switched cables and both cables are good. Even tested both cables on a different receiver. Problem seems to lie within the tivo unit. Please advise.

    Welcome to the forum. Suggestions for the future: 1) Select the appropriate forum section (in this case, DirecTV Receiver with TiVo), and 2) Use a meaningful title.

    There is a common problem with the DirecTV TiVos in that the power supply starts to fail and this causes Tuner 2 to stop working. The power supply is easily replaced with one from a donor unit of the same general type (Series 2 DTiVo) or one you buy separately.

    I agree with you on #2. I give #1 a pass because the OP needs help and this IS the TiVo Help Center. ;):)
