SOURCE: my tivo HD is not broadcasting or recording in HD

I would agree with mjjdesigns. You will likely need to get a cable card, which luckily the Tivo supports to receive the HD signal. Your Tivo may be able to receive the channels without the Card, though I have found that they are often mapped to funny places, for instance on my network, Channel 3 which reports as cable channel 403 with the CableCARD, shows up as 84-3 on the TV and Tivo if not tuing through the CableCARD.

It is possible that you think that you are getting an HD signal through the TV just becuase it is showing up in the 16:9 format. Unless you are tuning to an HD channel (such as 3-1 or 5-1) it is standard definition being stretched to fit your screen. Your Tivo can do this to by pressing the Aspect button on your remote, but it still won't be HD.

Also, if you do get a CableCARD from the cable company, be sure to ask for a multi stream card so that you only need one card and can tune to cable channels on both tuners. Also, I know that the cable companies have often had significant trouble getting CableCARDS to work with the Tivo. Be patient, it is often the Cable Co's fault but they typically pass the buck first to Tivo. Tivo has a hotline established for the sole purpose of working with the Cable Companies to make the cards work in their devices. If you wind up in the situation, call Tivo Customer Service and ask for this hotline.

Hope this helps - Flub

That means the channel is active but but there is a problem with the delivery by the broadcaster, not a defective TV.

It means that the tv doesn't gets the correct signal from the cable or the antenna - check them.

Comcast cable channel one off from Tivo channel


I've never, ever heard of this problem - having been a happy TiVo user for over 15 years. The very first thing I would do is call Comcast and tell them what is occurring. How long had everything worked OK before this happened? If things were OK for a long time before this, and if your TV carrier was, likewise, Comcast for a long time; and if you haven't gotten a new TV or cable box for a long time, then the problem must rest with Comcast. It must!
In our home, with the number of movies, shows/sporting events/etc. which we record, that would be totally unacceptable!

Try this: Unplug everything (with everything turned off). Make sure your TiVo remote is good (fully charged batteries and the code is right for your TV/cable box), Wait for 10 minutes and plug everything back in, starting with TiVo, then the TV, then any other accessories.

Plug back in and do a complete restart from scratch - like you did when you first set up TiVo.

Make SURE that your receiving channel (3 or 4) is the same on both. It could be that someone accidentally has changed it - are there kids in the house?

If none of this works, get Comcast in there. That's all I can tell you. . .

Make sure you are using an IR cable to control the cable box from the tivo.

Turned on set....screen all black except a dark blue rectangle in center which reads:Failed to receive broadcast [E202]


That message is presented when a selected digital channel is too weak to decode. Let us hope that something was accidentally changed:

Is the channel legitimate?
Is the antenna/cable still connected (to the Digital input)?
Go into menu - setup - channel setup. Is the selection of either cable or air channels correct for your situation?
Use menu - setup - Antenna Setup-DIGITAL to examine the signal strength. Is there nothing at all, or is it just a question of strength?

Odds favor a change in channel setup that you would not have made intentionally, or a simple physical problem (input cable, etc.). Start from scratch, and check the settings and connections you originally made. Hopefully it will be simple and cheap!

My tivo HD is not broadcasting or recording in HD


As far as I know, you need the cable cards to get HD through the Tivo, because they're what does the HD decoding and output.

37 inch Sharp Aquos. "Failed to receive Broadcast [E202]"


This is basically a message for no signal on the tv, make sure the tv itself is on the correct input for the type of cable used. The inputs are labled by numbers on the back of the tv. The input can be changed by the button on the side panel of the tv.
