    I have a new Inteset universal remote that I have to replace a Harmony 700. I have it set up for use with a Roamio OTA. I'm not sure what the cause is, but when I use the Inteset, the ability to cycle through the 4 tuners stops working. Live TV button works, but the tuner doesn't change. I get the sound, and it acts like it's changing, but it stays on the same tuner. If I use the Tivo or Harmony remote, I get the same result.

    I have to pull the plug to get the cycle function to work again. It will work normally with the Tivo or Harmony until I use the Inteset. Seems to happen if I use skip-forward or skip-back on the Inteset. I can use Info and select a different tuner that way, but I prefer the normal operation. I've only added skip-forward, skip-back, and the dash to the default Tivo code. Anyone have any insight to the Inteset functions?

    If the Harmony works normally until you use the Inteset, I'd guess the Inteset is sending bad commands to the TiVo and causing some kind of error in the I/R circuit.

    Learn that Button in from the Harmony?

    Where does the Inteset get its I/R Commands from?

    This indicates the Inteset is using an old TiVo code for that button if I recall correctly. Does the Inteset have different configurations for newer model TiVo's?

    Live TV button does not switch tuners.

    Thanks for the responses. I was using a code that was shown from another post here. Inteset has 4 codes for TiVo. Only 1 works without affecting the normal LiveTV function. Switched to that code and set up the buttons the way I like. Remote is working great now.
