Advertisements ... without spending any money. So, there was a couple of people in the Atlanta area (me included) getting Comcast basic analog cable service with our dual tuner S2s and having a problem getting channel four clearly (had the same problem with my S1, too, though). This is a major issue, as 4 is our Fox affiliate, and therefore accounted for half the programming I was recording (House, 24, Simpsons.... and I admit it, American Idol). The VCR tuned channel four just fine, as did the TV. This is clearly a Tivo problem (mediocre tuner) that they refuse to fix (I have another Tivo that tunes it just fine, but it's an 80 hour S2 as opposed to my new 180 hour DT). So, since we never use the VCR anymore, I tuned it to channel four and connected the line outs to the line in on the Tivo. Then I lied to my Tivo telling it I had Dish Network with the local channels option. After going through all the setup, and lying about how Tivo was tuning the satellite box just fine, I deleted every single satellite channel from my channel listing except for the local Fox affiliate (WAGA). That didn't quite do it - all the season passes wouldn't change to the new channel. So I had to delete the "real" channel four from the channel list, which (very nicely) automatically changed all my channel four season passes to the "satellite" channel (what it thinks is 5737). The end result is that, soley for channel four (the single problem channel), the Tivo switches to my VCR which is left on channel four. I can even still watch a video tape (I haven't in years, but I could), I just couldn't do it while the Tivo wanted to record from channel 4 (5737 now, actually, according to Tivo). After a little experimenting, this is working great as it automatically selects line in/cable depending on the channel. I'm sad I had to go through this, and Tivo won't own up to and fix a mediocre turner (I guess it depends on where they were getting their parts from at the time), but it's definately a workable solution and I'm happy to see clearly after watching the first four hours of 24 all mangled.
