Connecting a video to my TIVO


I have a TIVO serie 2. I am trying to connect a video in the back to watch it and record it on my tivo using the Live TV feature. I use the plugs on the back of my TIVO "input" to connect my camera to the TIVO and then I use the cable Antenna to my tv.

I see the TIVO image but can not get the TIVO to read my signal. Even when I try to use the S-Video connector it is the same.

I even have two different TIVO unit serie 2 and it is not working on both of them

I did try all the possible set up and waisted already many hours trying to figure out the problem... It should be so simple but apparently it is not ?

Any idea

Thank you for your help
