What does the "A/V jack" on the rear panel of the Roamio basic (4-tuner) output and what kind of cable connector does it take?
It's labelled "Composite" on the Start Here installation poster and on the rear panel picture on p. 92 of the Roamio Viewer's Guide, but on the physical box it's labelled "A/V". The Viewer's Guide says of it, "Composite. Connects to a TV, VCR, DVD recorder, or A/V system. Breakout composite cable (available at tivo.com/ store.) provides very good standard definition picture quality and analog audio (stereo)." On visual inspection of the rear panel it's a small hole (about the size to accommodate the prong of an RCA connector) encircled in yellow. There is no protrusion from the panel to take an RCA plug's ground ring.
A couple of TiVo telephone tech support techs provided information which conflict with each other and with the Viewer's Guide description. The pics in for the "breakout cable" kit at TiVo's online store show two cables, each with an RCA-like plug at one and and three at the other. I say "-like" because the pics of the two cables are too small to see the connectors well. The description is, "Breakout Cable kit for TiVo Mini supporting Component Video, Composite Video and Analog Audio (Stereo)". It looks like one cable breaks out into composite video plus analog audio and the other into component video.
I took delivery of the unit today, but won't get my M-Card from Charter until Dec. 28.
