I have my new LCD (sony) being shipped in today. My current setup includes cable out the wall (no cable box) into my HD tivo and from there into my tube TV.
My cablecards for the tivo don't come in till late next week. and likewise, my digital and HD signaled cable doesn't start till that time
my question is that till the whole digital and HD setup kicks in, would it be possible to still hook up my tivo to the new lcd via a HDMI cable? Tivo HD does have a HDMI out.
in other words, even with a normal cable signal from the wall into the tivo, would that signal be carried out from the tivo to the LCD via an HDMI cable? I understand that since the signal coming in is non digital/HD there will be no up conversion.
does HDMI carry a regular video signal that's not digital?
