Do you have a video sender ?

It is quite well known that the video transmitter end/IR receiver ends of video senders are very supseptable to RF (radio frequency) interference. This manifests itself as what could be described as "IR dribble" from the IR dongle attached to the TiVo. This can easily be seen using a camcorder.

Turn video sender off, "IR dribble" stops and TiVo changes channels instantly and 100% success.

Turn video send on, TiVo can take ages to change channel (minutes sometimes !!!) and then sometimes fails to get correct channel.

My video senders leads are wrapped around ferrite rings and ferrite suppressers (from Maplin) and that has cured most of the problems.

Search the for forum for ferrite and you will find plenty of people with similar issues and solutions.
