UHHHH, you did what?

Mistake, not what those connectors are for...

they're for remote IR sensors to hide the boxes.  I think you use an IR emitter (IR blaster)  plugged into the Tivo and tape it to the front of the DTA or cable box, not a direct cable which will not work.. There is also made  up optoisolated cable that has a 2 ckt plug on the tivo side and a 3 pin to go into the cable box, BUT, IT kills any normal IR remote input of the box so you can't use the factory remote.

 

 

 

The 271 also uses an RF remote, if it came with one you need to change it to IR

Tivo Series 2 channel changing with CISCO DTA 271hd what IR code to use?

Have old Tivo Series 2 connected to  cisco DTA 271hd.   Connected the IR port on tivo to DTA's ir port but can't seem to get to get the channels to change.

 

On Channel Changing menu TWC said to use Scientific Atlantic cable box for the cisco DTA 271hd? 

is this correct?  CISCO was not an option.

 

Tried Advance setting where you can set the IR code tried

10104  and 10014  but niether seems to work.

 

Does any one know the correct IR code to use?

 

Thanks
