I am a new user to the forum, though I've been trolling here for a while. I now need some assistance. I'm using a Tivo Series 2 TCD24008A with a DirectV Samsung HDTV receiver. The problem I have is that, as configured, I have to have the two machines on the same channel for the Tivo to record what I want it to. No matter what I want to record, the Tivo records whatever channel the Samsung is on. Is it possible that an easy fix to this may be running a multiswitch with separate signals running into each machine? Or is this something I could fix by using a different guide? Or am I just hosed and need to get a new machine? I appreciate any help.
