This is my 1st post, I hope someone can help me.
I bought TIVO off Telecom 2-3 months ago for $360 and so far it has been excellent, way better picture quality than SKY as I wasn't paying SKY the extra $15 for HD.
Though there is something wrong with the remote control. I have my TIVO box in the loungeroom running the 42 in LCD, and a splitter running it into my bedroom running an old CRT TV. The problem is unpredictably the remote stops working in the loungeroom, but only the TIVO functions such as FF/Rewind pause, channel numbers etc. All the TV functions such as mute and Volume up or down work OK. Its really weird as whenI use the same remote in the bedroom evrything ALWAYS works, in fact even better, theres no pause or sound dropout when I click to see the guide etc.
Its not batteries and its not that I am too far away from the box, as sometimes I can hit FF and it works, but as soon as I hit play or rewind it doesnt respond and whizzes past my program after the ad break, which means I have to get up off the couch (lol) and put the remote right up against the TIVO box and it finally starts working again.
Sometimes it works fine for days and then other times it will work one minute then not the next minute but will work again a minute later.
Any ideas anyone, as I have tried all sorts of things and nothing works to solve this problem.
Other than this problem I think TIVO is fantastic value for money.
