It sounds like you have a Series 2. Easiest would be to hook the DVD player to the TV.
An alternative is to rerun Guided Setup, and specify that you also have a satellite receiver that uses the composite (R/W/Y) cables as input to the TiVo. You could probably chooses any satellite provider, but I would suggest a small "mom & pop" provider if one is available - only so it's easier to remove all the satellite channels but one, which would then be designated as the "DVD" channel. It would be best to choose a channel number that isn't
in the other lineup so it's easier to navigate to.
I did that with a security camera setup on my Series 2, and not a DVD player, but the premise is the same. It seems I had to be insistent during Guided Setup that yes
, the TiVo is
changing the channel correctly for the "satellite" receiver, even though no channel changing for that device would ever be involved. It might sound complicated, but it is a way to daisy-chain the TiVo and DVD player into one input on your TV.
