I have 2 Tivos:
1. Model TCD748320 (newer unit; will record two shows at once)
2. Humax Model DRT800
The Humax is hooked to my TV via A/V cables.
The newer Tivo has A/V outputs hooked into my Humax A/V inputs..
The idea is to play shows on the new unit and record them on the Humax. I could either record them normally to "Now Playing" and then move them to DVD; or, ideally, I could go straight to DVD but I don't know if that would work. Ever.
Anyway, I have no confirmation from the Humax that it is receiving any signal at all through its A/V inputs. For example, I set the TCD unit to play a WSOP episode, and checked the proper input on the TV. WSOP was playing on the TV, straight from the TCD unit. I changed the TV to the appropriate input for the Humax but could not find the WSOP episode anywhere. Not in "Now Playing", not on "Watch Live TV"- nothing.
It was exactly as though I had never hooked anything into the Humax A/v inputs.
So. Is there any way to check to see if the A/V inputs are dead?
Or. Is there anyone who can wade through the above tangled prose and tell me what I am doing wrong????
Thanks in advance....
