I am a newbie TIVO customer. I have DireTV hookup to my TIVO. I have been able to record programs when I watch them, but my problem is recording when I am away. Everytime I set the recorder to record something ...it only records the first 2 minutes...but that's all.
I don't have any saved recordings, so theres no storage problem. I even tried to manually record something today for 10 minutes and it only recorded for 2 minutes.
Am I doing something wrong.
PS it records fine when I watch a program.

What happens after two minutes? Does the recording end abruptly or do you get the rest of the time with a black screen? You are leaving the satellite box on all the time, yes?

It should work as long as you leave the DTV receiver on. You might want to consider getting a DTV Tivo. They are much easier to use with DTV.
