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.

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.
