tivo box, 3 channels 2 not working

tivo box, 3 channels 2 not working.

 

They only work when I set them to record, I cannot select other channels whilst watching A channel.

Is the tivo box fubar?

Re: tivo box, 3 channels 2 not working

If you’ve tried the usual instructions to reboot the box (which resets the tuners) without success the call faults, as its likely one of the boxes tuners is faulty.

Be aware that if the box has to be changed you will loose any recordings you have.

No, that's how it works since the recent software 'upgrade'. Only one channel available to view not three as it used to be.

Unfortunately now you will have to set it up to record the three channels if you want to view more than one.

If you change  to a V6 it will work the way it used to before with all 6 channels continually being buffered so you can flick between and rewind any of them for up to one hour.
