Probably 3 menus deep. Why? How often would you want to do this?
Ouch... that sucks. Trying to justify my WVHS vcr . Still I guess I could use it to offload shows to tape that I want to archive but am not as picky about quality.
Switching between 1080i/720p/480p/480i? Press UP on the TiVo remote.
No, switching between component and DVI... but now I'm getting confused
Nobody knows for sure. I just guessed 2 posts ago that it would be 3 menus deep.
Eh, ok. Something I'd set up to do overnight then... switch to component, play the show through to the vrc, then back to DVI for day to day viewing. Not terribly convenient. I'd prefer the Voom method of all outputs active at once, but oh well.
Whenever she walks from the master bedroom to the kitchen or vice versa.
Right now the HD-capable 17" LCD in the kitchen can view any of three TiVos (home theater, MBR, her office). The MBR TiVo is used the most it's a 2-tuner DirecTV model which I intend to replace with the new HDTV TiVo. The existing MBR feed to the kitchen is analog NTSC, and I would have been happy to keep it that way were it not for the lack of concurrent composite/S-video in the new TiVo. So I was planning to upgrade the feed to the kitchen to component video, whilst using the DVI for the (planned) new 32" LCD in the MBR itself.
I guess I just assumed that both the component and DVI were always active, even though the NTSC outputs are not. (After all, they are both the same high def resolution.) That is, until I was shocked by your post earlier today ...
Component video splitter...
If you aren't sure about that, how sure are you that the component and DVI outputs are not concurrently active?
From what other people posted I thought the composite and s-video outputs are active at the same time. But they're both only active when the output resolution is 480i.
Everything in the FAQ is from official sources. The Component vs. DVI thing is from a TiVo employee.
Any news on the quality of the 8VSB tuner in the HD Tivo? Have any of the beta testers reported on how it compares to other HD receivers in terms of its ability to lock in on OTA digital signals?
Pete Putnam has run some very interesting articles in which he compares different receivers and antennas:
I'm hoping the Tivo is a bit more sensitive and less prone to multipath problems than my Toshiba DST-3000.
I haven't seen this mentioned yet, but is anyone aware if this unit will contain a Signal meter for OTA tuning? In my opinion, no signal meter = no sale!
We have heard from a good source that it does indeed have an OTA signal meter.
not sure if we've talked about this yet but, do u guys think the HD-dvr250 will output any format regardless of the format recorded? In other words, will it upconvert a 480i recording to 720p or 1080i ?
Yes. And yes, it's already been talked about.
very good Doug -- u passed.
just testing your infinite wisdom...
> I'm hoping the Tivo is a bit more sensitive and less prone to multipath problems than my Toshiba DST-3000.
I guess your experience with DST-3000 hasn't been the same as me. My DST-3000 with CM4228 had been wonderful. I am expecting HR10-250 to be just as good.
just curious - how close are u to the broadcast towers? I'm hooking up an ota this week for use with the HD-dvr250.
When is the latest date that these will be released to the public?
