    Would there be any issue running DirecTV and Fios on the same television (Pioneer Kuros 50")?

    I want to keep DirecTV soley for the NFL package and then purchase an HD Tivo to be used in conjunction with Fios. The Fios installer who was at my house 2 days ago said it was not possible, but I have a hard time believing he is right.

    Thanks for any insight you can provide.

    No, there wouldn't. I have FiOS and use a TivoHD equipped with a 1TB hard drive.


    You may want to get a universal remote that will simplify switching between the two services. I use the Harmony One.

    It would be separate cabling ,box, and input on the TV. It will work fine, no different than having DirecTV and normal cable TV.

    Of course, you cannot integrate DirecTV into your HD TiVo.

    D* goes to one input on your TV and FIOS goes to the other...

    then again, I guess it all depends how your D* and FIOS are wired through your house.
