TIVO Series 2 DIRECTV/Analog to Digital Conversion for Cable

    Hi Everyone

    Cablevision is finally converting local channels to digital. Currently I have a Series 2 Tivo with a direct cable connection for local channels and a DirectTV box connected to my Series 2.

    I only use the cable for local channels so I can record two shows at one time. One from the cable connection and one from my directtv on local channels only.

    I wasn't sure how I can convert the analog local channels (2, 4, 7, 11) to digital. I realize I need an analog to digital convertor box but wasn't sure if it would work with the other connections I already have on my box (directv box).

    Does anyone have any experience with this?

    I'm confused. The S2 Tivo only has analog tuners so why would you want an analog to digital converter? I'm also confused as to how you are getting two sets of inputs to your S2 box to record on separate channels. If it is a dual-tuner box, then it still only uses one signal input for recording on the two tuners.

    If it is a Series 2 DT, you are pretty well SOL, since it can run only one box at all in its stock condition.

    If it is a single tuner, you can easily set it up for cable with box (which is what the cable DTA basically is) on RF in, and satellite box on A/V in.
