Note: If the error code you have received is not on this list, please refer to our article on troubleshooting your TiVo connection.

 
Error Code Issue Steps to troubleshoot issue
V52, V53 "Problem with the signal on this channel. Trying again." message received when entering Live TV or tuning to another channel.
  1. Make sure all cables are securely connected at both ends
  2. Reboot the TiVo device by unplugging the power cord for 15 seconds, then plugging it back in.
  3. If the error remains, please contact Cogeco Technical Support.
V58 "This channel is not authorized." is displayed when tuning to a channel, entering Live TV, or selecting a program in the Guide. This message means the data is locked for that cable channel.

First, make sure you already subscribed to the channel. See how to modify your channel selection.

If you subscribed, try the following these steps:

  1. See if there is an outage in your area.
  2. Reset your modem. To do so, insert a straightened paperclip into the reset or reboot hole located on the back of the modem. Press in for 3 seconds, then release. The modem will try to resynchronize with the Cogeco network, which can take up to 2 minutes.
  3. Verify your TiVo Service Connection:
    Access TiVo Central on your screen, then Menu > Settings > Network Settings > TiVo Service Connection.
  4. Restart your main TiVo device:
    Access TiVo Central on your screen, then Menu > Help > Restart Box > Press Thumbs Down 3 times and then Enter.

If you’re still experiencing problems after completing the steps above, please contact our Technical Support.
