Recently, our HDVR2 is experiencing issues on Sat 2. Yes, I tried the S-Video fix and have had no results. I checked the transponders, and only a handful had low signal strength. I'm not sure what else to do, so I'm thinking about replacing the unit, but I refuse to give up Tivo. So, what I am thinking about doing is getting a stand alone Tivo and a regular DTV box. On Tivo's website, it says it's compatible with DirecTV, but I seem to remember reading that you lose the digital signal when you use a stand alone Tivo with satellite - is this true? Is there a reason I don't want to go the stand alone route with satellite? Thanks!
