    hi! i just got a pvr device to watch tv on my computer, called typhoon tv - when i first tried to change the channels, most of them were black... then i stumbled on the "full scan" feature, and after i ran that, i can see all the channels - problem is, they are not in the right order AT ALL ...plus, what was ABC, is now a continual advertisement about Dvr from my cable company................ have i done something wrong or illegal that i didn't know about, to prompt the cable company to put that on there? and, is it normal for a pvr to mess up the channel lineup like that? i tried deleting some of the extra channels that were throwing off the others, but then the others change too (?? it's weird) and i've had to redo the full scan (a process that takes HOURS) several times already!

    signal you want is NTSC USA CABLE or equivalent
    if you don't want any thing you didn't order, screem at the cable company. that sometimes helps.

    It's been quite a while since we used "Cable", we have been on Satellite for many years. As I remember the cable set up tho, if you used their "BOX" you got the correct number scheme and order, BUT if you plugged the cable directly into a cable ready TV (or tuner), you got a much different channel layout.

    So, my question to you is, does the PVR have a built-in cable tuner box, or not. If not, are you using an external BOX???
