I was wondering if there is a way to hook the tivo up to the 2nd tuner? I don't know much about the setup of the satellite. If this is possible could you please let me know how I can set it up. Thank you in advance.
Assuming that your television set or other video display has the capability to accept and choose between more than one input, that the Dish receiver is your only source of channels, and going by the information about that receiver from here:
and assuming that the TiVo can figure out which of the two Dish remotes to emulate, I'd hook the Dish receiver's TV2 yellow, white, and red output jacks to the TiVo's corresponding input jacks (sometimes known as line, or line-level, inputs), bearing in mind that you will need an active video signal on the line feeding the yellow input jack on the TiVo when you set it up to work with the Dish receiver.
