Can anyone tell me the best way to connect the two sources into the Tivo to avoid any difficulties?
I'll give you the long waffley answer:
Tivo dual source setup only allows one freeview and one of (sky or cable).
That's one part of tivo that could do with an update IMO for more flexibility.
There is no Cable + freeview option (though you can do this by pretending cable=sky and remapping chnanels), and there is no sky + cable option.
If you are happy using cable for freeview channels only, then you could
setup dual-source sky (f) and freeview (scart). Then remap the freeview channel numbers to cable numbers.
Channel mapping is very messy though, and has to be redone when you get a lineup change...
The virgin STB currently goes into the Aux scart on the Tivo and there is nothing in the VCR scart (tv connected via the TV scart)
The VCR scart cannot be used for recording, its an output & passthrough only.
