    I greatly appreciate the efforts that you made to try and answer my question. I thought too of just connecting to the Tivo server, but I am pretty sure that I would have to pay monthly fees for a digital cable box, Cox inspects for Digital Cable Boxes when they come to our house. At least it doesn't sound like a hardware issue, with all of the changes. I will call Tivo. Thanks!

    A separate possibility as well: as I understand things, you're not using the TX60 box for show programming. And so you could re-run the box's guided set-up and set the box for over-the-air operation rather than cable (whether or not you can get OTA signals where you are, and whether or not you have an antenna), and then set the box for dial-up connection to TiVo over your landline, if you have that (or, if you have a TiVo wireless adapter, set the box to connect to your wireless network)--the connection could just be temporary, to update your box. Just a thought, if you want to troubleshoot on your own some more--this would eliminate the TiVo connection variable.

    Owen, your question may or may not be odd. But it is no where near as odd as my response. I don't have an answer. Nor do I have a Tivo DVD unit.

    I am just telling you I understand completely your point. I have a Magnavox 868 which is a DVR with a DVD player/burner. And I love it! And, of course, it is discontinued. I fully realize that "hard" media is no longer popular and everybody streams. But I use it constantly. Burning a show that I have on it to a dvd to play in another room, burning to transfer to my computer. I have two buddies that I jam guitars with weekly and I burned the entire Ken Burns 8 episode documentary on country music for them. (Whoops! Copyright infringement admission!) (I also burned the PBS docu "The Native Americans" and shared.)

    The only thing that keeps it from being perfect for me is an EPG. Magnavox was scheduled to release a product line with EPG but cancelled it.

    I'm ranting. Sorry. You can now return to your regularly scheduled thread.
