I finished the Guided Setup and I saw and heard my DVD player on the aux channel 00. When I changed channel in the live TV mode and changed back to channel 00 it shows "searching for signal" on the light blue background. This is very odd.
Mine is a 240. Can you try a guided setup with the live tivo on channel 00 and see if that works before changing channels on your non-240 boxes?mick66 said:Odd, this seems to only work on my 240. My 540 and 649 refuse to cooperate
I doubt that it's been fixed or publicized. You can't record directly by pressing the red dot button. Previously, doing that would result in having to repeat the guided setup. I have no idea if that is still the case or not. Recordings have to be timed manual recordings. It's kind of a sloppy process, but it works and that's all that matters. Maybe tivo will succeed in breaking this in the next update.Is this now a documented feature? When it was first introduced in version 2, it was badly flawed and would require you to rerun Guided Setup if you tried to record from channel 0 or 1. It was not made public at that time, though people learned about it anyway. I was not aware that TiVo ever fixed this or publicized the feature since.
Mine either. I never bothered to check this because I only use my 540 for this, mostly to watch DVD's with the Tivo controls that I've become so used to.I have a series 2, 649 unit and the manual record doesn't work for me. I sure hope this gets restored.
