    I have a series 2 tivo and want to get rid of the two tw dvrs and go with a new Romio . I have an older 57 inch tv that has a dvr input or component inputs and wondered if the newer Model: TCD848000 will work with the component inputs until I can get a new hdmi tv. Thank you for any input.

    If you are asking if that model of Roamio, the Plus, has the red, green, and blue RCA jacks on the back (in addition to the red and white audio, and the yellow composite video), then yes, it does, as does the TCD840300, the Roamio Pro.

    The base model Roamio, the TCD846500, has a 1/8th inch jack, like a small headphone jack, that requires a "breakout cable" you buy separately which will give you left and right audio (white and red RCA plugs, or jacks, not sure which) and composite video (yellow RCA plug or jack), but no component video out.

    But it's the only one that can do over the air stations.

    But you have to set it up for those OR for cable, but it can't do both at the same time.

    All three models have an HDMI output jack.

    Thank you for your reply. I had watched the video on tivo's website and it did not show anything but the hdmi. Know that I know better I will be buying the Romio plus, then when I upgrade the tv I can go hdmi. Thanks again, Don

    The small 4 tuner Roamio does NOT have component video, but the Plus and Pro both do.
