I have two SA Tivos and the D10 DYV Receivers. Once I got the
DTV 'upgrade' last night, I couldn't get Tivo to change to
channels under 200 either. (I use the Tivo to tuner serial cable
I called DTV and they said that, "Yes, they had heard of the
problem and Tivo was aware of it." I said that, "No, you did it
and Tivo can't fix it if there's no signal coming out of the DTV
low-speed data port." After a bit more 'discussion', we agreed
that he would pass along my complaint and that everyone that had
the same problem should do the same because more complaints would
speed up the process.
