  • Page 46: Troubleshooting

    Troubleshooting Why does the Recorder have to be connected to a phone line? • The Recorder needs to be connected to a phone line or to broadband Internet access to make its regular connection to the TiVo service. This connection downloads program information, which tells the Recorder when programs are scheduled to air and on what channel.

  • Page 47

    C h a p t e r 5 What if I need to use the phone while the Recorder is connecting to the TiVo service? • It’s unlikely that you’ll notice the Recorder’s phone calls, because its connection to the TiVo service typically lasts only about 10 minutes and will occur during evening hours.

  • Page 48

    My Recorder remote control doesn’t control my TV’s power, volume, etc. • You must first program the Recorder’s remote control to turn your TV on and off and control its volume and mute functions. You can also program it to control volume and mute on an A/V receiver or stereo. For more information, see “Setting Up the Remote Control”...

  • Page 49

    C h a p t e r 5 I accidentally changed channels with my TV or VCR’s remote control. • If you use your TV’s or VCR’s remote to change the channel, the TV will no longer display the video signal from the Recorder. To return to viewing video from the Recorder, return to the channel that your TV or VCR was tuned to.
