replay tv digital 5040 not compatible with comcast

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I plugged a cable from the wall to the 5040 and from the 5040 into a digital tv, message = no video signal. Comcast says that the DVR must be registered and they only register TiVo and their own. Replay dead?

You will get better help if you provide some more details.
1. Wall to 5040 - assume this is coax cable from Comcast, no box (keep in mind ReplayTv will only handle analog signal on coax).
2. 5040 to digital TV - is this coax or red/white/yellow cable or red/green/blue cable?
3. Has ReplayTv been configured for your local Comcast analog channel lineup?

My mom has comcast and I have her on a replaytv. Recently Comcast turned off ALL analog signal in her area.. Each analog TV needs a comcast provided converter box. The ReplayTV is analog. It needs a converter box as well, and the appropriate code enabled in the ReplayTV's setup.

If you still have an analog TV see if that can pick up any stations from Comcast.

When comcast talks about registering a Tivo, I think they are referring to a Tivo with Cablecard. In that configuration, you don't need the comcast converter box.

You'll need to go wall -> cable box -> replaytv. The ReplayTV can control some cable boxes via a IR blaster.
