    :mad: My 2 year old TiVo stopped working in Peabody, MA allegedly, per Comcast rep, due to Motorola's tinkering with my cable box. Anyone have this problem? Comcast says their, Motorola's and TiVo's engineers are working on the problem but in the meantime I am going nuts with nothing recorded correctly. Thanks.

    You need to provide us a lot of extra information, however I can make a guess.... What it sounds like happened is that iGuide issued a firmware update, which, by default, disables serial control of the cable box. You could just set up the IR blaster to drive the cable box, or you could go through a lengthy and perhaps fruitless effort to get the engineers at your local head-end to re-enable serial control.
