I am a FIOS customer with 2 TVs. On one TV I have a FIOS HD box (upstairs) and on the other, I have TIVO HD (downstairs).
It is rare that both TVs are used simultaneously, so I am trying to figure out how I can get by with just the one HD Tivo feeding both TVs....this saves $10 a month on the FIOS bill.
Here are some of the options I have thought of....I'm hoping people here have something better.
1. Slingbox with a sling catcher....never used it, but from what I've read, this would accomplish the task. Downside is that it will be expensive to implement.
2. If I hooked up both HDMI and Component cables (with audio as well) to the TIVO, would the TIVO play both or is only one live? If both are live, then I could simply run the extra cables....but then I need to figure out how to remote control the TIVO downstairs from upstairs?
3. TIVO desktop software....I have a compter near the upstairs TV...can I simply stream video to the computer upstairs to be displayed on upstairs TV? I thought I read somewhere that you can only transfer recorded shows...this would rule out live tv?
4 Anyone else got a thought on this?
