Maybe the model you bought is not HD capable?
Did the unit you bought come with Lifetime?
Could the unit you bought have a defective tuner?
Sorry as I guess perhaps I am confusing many. There is nothing wrong with the TIVO unit, I do not have a subscription.
I spoke with someone at TIVO last night and they said in order to actually receive the channels with a decimal point 5.1, 116.1 etc I need a TIVO tuning adaptor which is provided by my cable company and of course since I don't have cable service I cannot get one of these tuners.
Months ago I had cable and did not have cable boxes as my TV's were the tuner as I got all channels 2,3,4 etc etc. When I cancelled the cable, I was still somehow able to still get HD Channels 2.1, 5.2 116.1 thru the coaxial, granted I only have 10 channels but that is all I needed. Since my man cave did not have a receiver as I have a projector I purchased the TIVO in hopes to get the 5.1, 116.2 etc but again I need a Tuning Adapter for this. I hope this give you better light.
