    I have DTV service with Time Warner Cable. Their set-top box and remote
    control do not use an IR remote signal therefore MC does not recognize the IR
    during the set-up wizard. As a result, the MC tv channels will not change
    using the MC remote and tv programs will not record the correct channel as
    programmed from the tv guide. Also, the pc has a dual tv tuner and I'm using
    1 set-top box (Pioneer-Voyager) Any suggestions on fixing the channels and tv
    recording problems?

  2. You will need a second set top box to use dual tuners, as you cannot get
    separate Guide data for each tuner. And the STB's have to be IR controlled,
    or there's no way they'll work with the Media Center IR Receiver and IR
    emitters. There is no RF based version of these components for MCE.
