Question Going back to DTV

Hello-
I just signed up to get DTV installed. I have a series 2 Tivo and I want to run DTV on it. Can this be done without IR Blasters? I remember I did this way back when I had my Orgional Series 1 Tivo.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

You can probably get DirecTV TiVos used on eBay for cheap. And they probably only cost $5 per month each instead of $13.

Then you could sell your Series 2 for a good price.

Just an option to think about.

That seems to be a problem lately with DirecTV.

Good luck.
