    I've got a Series 3 Tivo - TCD663320 (New Zealand)

    My brother has Chromecast - & ive been looking at it, but the website does not advise any 'system requirements' as such.

    (Do a google search for 'google chromecast' - i cant put links in here)

    it does mention a HDMI port. (my actual TV is oldish - but TIVO is crystal-clear on it, & the programmes are all crystal-clear)

    I'm wondering, is there a HDTV/HDMI port (not sure what HDMI stands for?).
    anyway - is there such a port on TIVO series 3, & has anyone used it with Chromecast ?

    My understanding (frequently wrong :eek:) is that Chromecast feeds signal into the HDMI port, whereas the HDMI port on the Tivo's you mentioned is to output signal from the Tivo only. Thus it doesn't seem sensible to plug a Chromecast into a TiVo.
