Is your HD TiVo compliant with any sat. feed or only D*TV? I guess my real question here, is therea way to use TiVo which appears to be an intelligent DV recorder with a separate tuner? What is the connection? Can I still go DVI for HD?
It is all tied up in the sat transmission format that the receiver understands.
DISH is a combo of 4psk and 8psk (If I recall correctly) but being new to Directv, I have not had a chance to check what it's tarnsmission format is but I KNOW it is incompatible with DISH's.
The DISH 811 and 921 do DVI and the Directv HD TIVO do DVI.
If you are looking for an inexpensive way to get a DVI connection from an OTA HD tuner, look into the MYHD card.
