    You can click on that picture of the splitter in the above post and it will take you to the Amazon page.

    Thanks but I need Prime eligible so I can get it overnight. I searched and see many but am not sure which is good and which is compatible.

    Thanks. Will be here Tuesday afternoon. Cost me twelve cents since I had $5.45 in credit :)

    Now I have cable and splitter, in case one setup doesn't work or something is fubar. Either way I'll keep all components as you never know if it will need to be changed, if I need parts when I move, etc

    Oh ok, was wondering. Did you get the remote programmed for your TV?

    Uhm. Do I need to program it? Hm, guess I need to tell it what model of TV I have, right? Nope. Haven't tried to use it yet.

    Can you please tell me how? I didn't see instructions with it. Any hints on how to bring up the setup screen?

    LOL thank you anyway! I'll play around with it later and see if there is a Setup button or similar.

    Thanks! I found that last night but had trouble. It was late and I rushed so tonight I'll try again.

    I'd hit Set, it lit up, hit TV, then tried a code but nothing happened. Tonight I'll go slow but if no luck, I'll let Maintenance Guy program it. Worst case scenario I'll spend $60 for the real thing.

    Maintenance guy stopped in and said he'd be in tomorrow after lunch. So hopefully tomorrow night I'll post good news. My fingers are crossed!

    Update: maintenance guy has said he'd be in three Fridays ago, then this past week. But he's been too busy so I still have the splitter, cable and universal remote sitting here.

    I'm still happy with my used TiVo and recording is going well. It's just not being able to watch and record live tv that needs fixin'.

    I'll hopefully see him tomorrow. I'd pay someone local but can't find anyone.

    I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Do you want to watch Live TV while the Tivo is recording?
