Noob question - Series2 with digital converter box + projector
Here's the set up I have - I've looked through the similar threads but haven't found quite the answer I'm looking for (or they sounded far too complicated for me to figure out).
I have an InFocus Play Big IN72 projector, a Series2 tivo, a digital converter box (Motorola DCT700) that my cable company (RCN) just gave me, and regular (now digital) cable through the wall.
Before this whole digital business, I had the cable from the wall hooked into the TiVo, then the TiVo hooked to the projector via S-Video. Now that they've given me this digital converter box, however, I've been unable to get any channels or the TiVo to function properly.
The set up I tried was wall to digital converter box input, then coax output from the converter box to the tivo, then tivo to the projector via s-video. The TiVo, however, just says that there is no cable input and won't let me press any buttons or get to any menus.
Being a total newbie at this stuff, what am I missing here? To "activate" the converter box I had to punch in some numbers over the phone and told to tune my TV to channel 3, but of course, since I don't have a real TV I couldn't do that (because the TiVo wasn't recognizing any input).
I am totally at a loss! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
