Advertisements I used the "claim you have satellite" work-around to get my Series 1 working with an OTA digital converter box. Also set it up to work with cable. A couple weeks ago I wanted to record something off the cable version of our PBS station, and was surprised to later find the recording was made off the OTA version. (Different channel numbers, so I could tell.) "What was wrong with me?" I wondered. This afternoon I set something up for Wednesday afternoon, same situation, but took a look at the "To Do" list. The TiVo showed the recording set to record off the OTA version thru the converter box. I'm certain I set it for the cable box's version of the channel. Tried several more times, and each time the recording was input as the cable version, but showed up in the "To Do" list as the OTA version. Ran a few five minute recordings, and sure enough it was going to the OTA version, despite having been set for the cable version. Again, the channel numbers are completely different. (For example, let's say the cable version is channel 12, and the OTA version channel 37.) The only thing they have in common is their call letters in the TiVo channel banner. Now, other channels in our area (say, channel 5) have exactly the same cable and OTA number, and I've never had a problem differentiating between the two. I can set up to record whichever. (Sometimes cable's better for reception, but our cable company tends to crop widescreen shows, so for letterboxed widescreen I use OTA.) The only thing I can figure is the call letters are EXACTLY the same on the TiVo's channel banner with the PBS station, whereas on other channels, even if they share a common number, the OTA version is marked differently (usually a "DT" added to the call letters). Could that be what's happening? The TiVo sees they have the same banner ID, so it defaults to the "satellite" version for some reason? Thing is, I checked the "Channels I Receive" list, and there a couple other channels also show up as having the same ID for both versions, but they differ when the TiVo banner is displayed. The PBS station seems to be the only one where the call letters in the banner are exactly the same. Again, could that be what the problem is? In order to make sure I record the cable version on Friday, I've temporarily unchecked the OTA version from "Channels I Receive". Test runs show it'll work, but if after setting up the recording I re-check the OTA version in the list, the "To Do" list switches the recording to the OTA version! I'm leaving it un-checked until at least Wedesday.
