    Now that our Sony receiver has stopped working correctly with 7.2 tivo sw upgrade, am thinking about a new receiver.

    Can you respond with your DirecTV receiver model if:
    1) channel changing set up is NOT IR (i.e., uses serial cable or that other cable with the phone-jack thing on the end)
    2) your tivo is running system 7.2
    3) channel changing works correctly.

    My other tivo works fine but I have an older receiver (RCA) that is no longer available.

    Tivo support told me that the RCA D10 is compatible but I'd like someone to confirm. The reviews on Circuit City are mixed.

    Or if you have something else to recommend???

    TIA

    Thanks - took a look but honestly can't make heads or tails. Problem is I can't tell if they work with 7.2 tivo software. And they are certainly written for people who are much more up on the lingo than me. I can't make out all the abbreviations and short hand. but will continue to study it.

    Would still appreciate some speciifc model numbers if anyone happens upon this.
