    My Tivo is sometimes recording the wrong program by not changing channels correctly. Last night, it prompted me to have the channel changed at the time when I wanted to record something on a different channel, and I choose, yes, change the channel at the correct time to record what I wanted.
    However, it didn't do that.

    It does change the channel correctly and record the right thing sometimes though.
    Can this be fixed by going to a slower code? Any other suggestions?

    Thank you!

    A slower or faster code may help, as may repositioning the blaster and/or adding an IR fort/tent.

    Experiment until you get something that goes through several hundred manual channel changes (from the TiVo remote) without an error. Don't wait for season passes to fail. That takes way too long to debug.
