Are you using an IR blaster to get the Tivo to change the channel on the cable box? If so, it sounds like the cable box didn't catch the 2 in 28 and went to channel 8 instead.horizonflyer said:I've noticed this happening about six or seven times in the past few months and now it happened right before my eyes. There have been no channel lineup changes recently, I have WOW analog cable in the west suburbs of Chicago with an older Ameritech Cable settop box, (WOW bought Ameritech Cable years ago).
Last night I was watching TV and got the propmpt to switch channels for a recording to begin, I was going to record a program on NickTV, CH 28, from 7pm to 7:30pm. I switched TIVO to CH28 manually right away, then once the time hit 7:00pm, the cable boxed switched to CH8 (UPN), but the TIVO info was still showing that I was on CH28?
I tried to switch to CH28 during the recording but TIVO wouldn't let me, obviously becuase the TIVO was on CH28, and I didn't get the usual prompt if you are trying to switch during a recorded program, again because TIVO was on CH28. I then stopped the recording and then the TV switched itself to CH28.
Anyone have any suggestions? Again, I have gone through my channel lineup settings and nothing seems to be wrong, and there have been no major channel lineup changes.
