Advertisements I have a Tivo Premiere with the new 20.2 software. Decided to get the NewKinetix RE software and dongle so I can use my iPad as a universal remote. After a short learning curve things are working nicely except I can't seem to send a channel number with a dash in it using a macro. (I only have OTA channels.) According to NewKinetix I should just type a dash in the channel number field and it will be sent to the device and work. (It does work just like that on my other TV without Tivo). NewKinetix support doesn't know why Tivo isn't receiving the dash. Does Tivo send a special code or sequence for the dash? I tried using a two dashes in sequence and I tried using a period instead. All I get are numerals, no punctuation at all. With NewKinetix help I also added a pause in sending the channel number string to the Tivo but that didn't help. Any suggestions or insight are welcome.
