    I am setting up a philips series 1 tivo. I got it all set up without a subscription. I can pause, rewind, manually record, use the peanut to change channel, volume, etc. The one thing that is wierd is that I have the tivo set up for three-digit cable channels, but the tivo will only send the last two numbers I hit to the cable box. Hence, I cannot use the peanut to change the channel to anything above 99. Very upsetting.

    On the Tivo's settings, I have tried to set the "cable-box settings" to two-digit channel and then back to three-digit channel. It is even wierder with the two-digit setting and changing it back and forth doesn't help. I think I have tried all the settings on the tivo, but assume I am missing something.

    Can someone please help!? Thank you SO much!!!
