TIVO Setup Guide for PBTV (Residential Gateway)
Notes before Beginning:
We recommend using a set of RCA cables (the cables with the red, white, and yellow ends) to hook up the Tivo. You can use coax cable to hook up the PBTV gateway to Tivo. However, it is not recommended for reliability, signal quality and ease of hook up.
The Tivo needs some way of connecting to Tivo's network for downloading information and reporting to Tivo. A wireless network adapter and a telephone cord are provided with your TIVO. You will need to use one of them to connect the Tivo. If you do not have broadband internet you will have to use the phone cord. If you do not have a wireless router/access point, you will have to use the phone cord or purchase an ethernet adapter from Tivo.
If using the phone cord:
If using the wireless adapter:
If using the ethernet adapter from Tivo:
The Tivo Infrared Cable needs to be connected in order for the Tivo to be able to change the channels on PBTV. The Tivo can only change the channels on the TV that is set to the channel 3 video stream.
Plug the Tivo into the power. It doesn't technically matter when you do this, but the instructions from Tivo say to wait until last.
The Software Setup is fairly straight forward, but there are a few things you will run into.
