View Full Version : Have to change channels to Record correct channel

10-09-2003, 12:13 AM
I have 'googled' for this and have searched these forums and havent come up with anything, so some help or direction would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Im fairly new to this and have just started using a Tivo so this may be easily fixed, I just need a little help.
Im using a Series 1 SA Tivo with my RCA DirecTV reciever, connected with S-video and RCA for sound. I have been using my DirecTV remote to change channels with, but I want to know how to use my Tivo remote to change channels. Also, anothe issue Im having is if I want to record something I have to set my DirecTV reciever on that channel to record it, rather than the Tivo changing to that channel to record it. I figure these two issues are related, any help again would be much appreciated.

Use either the serial cable (if your RCA receiver has one) or the IR blaster to control the receiver from the Tivo.
