Try asking on www.tivocommunity.com The Tivo UK forum is very good at sorting out these sorts of problems with the NTL boxes.

BTW, things to check, are you using 200020 codes, have you got just one IR emitter in front of the box, about 2inches in front of the NTL box, to the left hand side of the channel numbers.

Finally, you may have some problems with dust. Some people recommend placing the emitter on the top of the box pointing down to stop dust affecting the emitter.

Hope you get some success.

I just swapped my 1000 series STB for a 4000 the old code 20004 fast still works but I do still have the doongle attached. I also remember when TW upgraded there software about 6 months ago 4000 series boxes stopped working without a doongle so may be the same has happenend with NTLs recent update

I am running NTL cable with a 4000 series box without the dongle.

tivocommunity.com recommends using 200020 codes for 4000 series, the previous codes locked up the radio channels.

Get in touch with TiVo support, only i bet that its just about getting the right code for your IR settup. They fixed me up very quickly. Daz
