I am very close to purchasing a HDTV, but I have a dilemma with my current Tivo Series 2 DT. We received this as a gift from my mother-in-law last year, and my wife does not want to replace it for sentimental reasons.
I need to connect this all somehow to be able to watch HD programming directly from the cable box, without losing the recording of the dual tuner (which of course would not be in HD). From what I have read, I just use a splitter for this and connect both to the TV, and switch back and forth from my TV. Would I then be able to watch TV in HD through my cable box while my Tivo in the background records two shows in SD?
What happens though when TV goes all digital next February? I would imagine that my TV would not receive a signal unless hooked directly up to the IO Digital Cable box, right? This would then not pass the HD signal, in my understanding, so I would not be able to watch TV in HD. Is that correct?
Thanks in advance for any help you folks can offer.
