    I'm trying to hook up my Cisco DTA 170HD to my Tivo Premier. Have a Sony home theater receiver. Cable provider is Time Warner who's tech support has been no help.

    I understand TV coax goes to DTA 'cable in' and Cisco-supplied coax goes from DTA 'to TV' back to Tivo.

    This DTA has one HDMI port and that's where I'm confused and so is TWC. How do I link HDMI to Tivo? TV HDMI is routed to receiver and receiver has HDMI tie to Tivo at present.

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Why would you use a DTA with a Premiere? Just plug the cable directly in to the Premiere and get a cable card.

    Have the cableCARD already. Several of the channels in TWC's lineup are switched digital which is the reason for the DTA.

    When I talked to a Tivo tech rep, he said I needed a USB connection from DTA to Tivo to link with channels, but the Cisco DTA they gave me has only HDMI + coax connex.

    The DTA won't work you need a Cisco SDV Tuning Adapter:
