I have had TIVO for 3 years and love it. Last week we got a digital box since Comcast now requires you to have a box to receive HBO. The TIVO will no long function properly. I reset it to work with a cable box. If you hit the record button it will record; it will pause and play the current TV show. However if it is programed to tape something, it cannot change the channel, it will record whatever channel the cable happens to be on. Any sugesstions on how to set it up?

Thanks,

Alan
Are you using an IR blaster from the Tivo to the cable box?

No I am not. Please explain what that is and how do you hook it up? Where can I purchase this?
There should be one that came with your Tivo. It should look like this http://www.weaknees.com/images/cables/tivo_ir_blaster.jpg.

On the back of the Tivo there's an "IR out". Connect the blaster to that and put the emiters on the cable box. Then, read this http://customersupport.tivo.com/knowbase/root/public/tv1069.htm.

When you change the channel on the Tivo, the emitters will send the signal to the cable box and the box should change to the proper channel.
