I am wondering why does tivo not scanning Triangle tv. I have done the channel scan on the tivo I can see only 17 channels includes radio ones. But I cannot see Triangle Tv.
Triangle tv website says frequency are on 631.25 MHz, 639.25 MHz and 719.25 MHz. But I cannot see them on the tivo.

Can I watch Triangle tv on Tivo ?

The Tivo is a DVB-T unit for Freeview|HD, it does not pick up analogue TV.

Triangle/Stratos is only carried on Freeview Satellite. It is not on the Freeview|HD platform. You will be able to tune it in on your TV's analogue tuner however.

Or you could get a Series 1 TiVo, which can record analog UHF/VHF or from a satellite receiver. You also get guide data for other channels people have been complaining about...
I have both S1 and S3HD (and working on a Series 2 Dual Tuner...)
