Recording on Humax from 2nd Tivo

I have 2 Tivos:

1. Model TCD748320 (newer unit; will record two shows at once)
2. Humax Model DRT800

The Humax is hooked to my TV via A/V cables.
The newer Tivo has A/V outputs hooked into my Humax A/V inputs..

The idea is to play shows on the new unit and record them on the Humax. I could either record them normally to "Now Playing" and then move them to DVD; or, ideally, I could go straight to DVD but I don't know if that would work. Ever.

Anyway, I have no confirmation from the Humax that it is receiving any signal at all through its A/V inputs. For example, I set the TCD unit to play a WSOP episode, and checked the proper input on the TV. WSOP was playing on the TV, straight from the TCD unit. I changed the TV to the appropriate input for the Humax but could not find the WSOP episode anywhere. Not in "Now Playing", not on "Watch Live TV"- nothing.

It was exactly as though I had never hooked anything into the Humax A/v inputs.

So. Is there any way to check to see if the A/V inputs are dead?
Or. Is there anyone who can wade through the above tangled prose and tell me what I am doing wrong????

Thanks in advance....

You should have the tivo Premiere 748 connected to the network, to get guide data, then you can download the shows you want to put to DVD on the computer. Its faster than going through your humax, but if you are going to use it that way, the inputs may not be active and may need to run guided setup. I am not sure if the humax is capable of transferring shows, but it may not as HD content cannot be transferred to a SD Tivo.

How is the Premiere connected to the TV?
