Trust me i didt it all correctly, just as i had it setup for years.

Remember, I did the guided setup BECUASE i have no live TV.

I recorded for 20 minutes.
Disconnected the VCR, looked a the saved video.

Hit "Live TV" and got black screen.

It has never recovered.

Try changing the channel using the chan up or down buttons. The Tivo sets itself to channel 0, a blank channel, when you record from a VCR. The channel guide and banners don't seem to come up on this channel. Changing the channel takes care of it.

You know i figured that out after much frustration.

I should have kept my email open and perhaps would have gotten your post and saved myself alot of time.

That was it!

Noone should be unable to navigate when the tivo has been requested to show live tv and The guide is useless on ZERO

What a screwy loophole / bug in the interface!

SOMEONE SHOULD FIX THIS!


I Never use channel up/down, so it wasn't a thought to do so that tie either.

Thanks for the reply so quick!
I hated the thought of mailing my tivo off and being without it!

Sigh... at least i would have my big Tivo pillow person.
(Can't find these around anymore!)
