Running DTV on an E86 through component cables to Television -- attempting to connect StandAlone Tivo unit. Unable to get video through tivo....

have tried through rca cables (on video1 tv setting), S-video and coax. Anyone encountered this problem before (I understand that the SA tivo will not accept the component connections but my current setup is as follows -- sat coax into E86 -- component cables from E86 to TV, working fine -- rca cables from E86 to tivo input -- rca cables from tivo output to tv, no video)

Is there something about the E86 that would make the tivo not work (I've disconnected the component cables and tried going straight through tivo to tv with rca, no video!!??)

The E86 can only output component or s-video/composite but not both at the same time. You will have to hit the HD/SD button on the remore before your Tivo will work.
