    Is there a way to connect a Tivo to the vip222 which is hi def receiver? I know it wont record in hi def. Just want to record in standard def.

    You can use any series 1 or series 2 TiVo to record from a VIP222 you would set it up the same way you would for any other satellite or cable set top box (STP). The Series 3 or TiVo HD do not work with STPs so they will not work with a VIP222.

    Good Luck,

    I can get it to work fine but can't seem to get the Tivo to change the channel on the VIP222. I researched and saw a suggestion to use code 10001A but it doesn't work for me.

    I know I'm using IR on the VP222 remote, but I'm stuck.

    dish receivers know 16 remote addresses, the tivo code is only for dish receivers set to unit/address #1. if its set to one of the other 15 addresses it won't work.
