My question is this... What would be the best way to connect it to the tv? Should I connect it by HDMI to HDMI input 1, or should I connect it by a coax cable to the coax input? BTW, I'm watching my programming by just OTA, and the internet. If anyone that has had this dilemma, you might know why I'm asking. Any takers... Thanks for any input.
If your tivo has an hdmi output, the coax in the back are inputs to tivo for antenna and for cable tv and are marked as such, you can't send the tivo output to the tv via coax.
Coax from antenna to splitter -- one feed to tivo and the other to the tv.
HDMI from tivo to Samsung -- If there are more than one hdmi inputs on tv it shouldn't matter which you use for tivo.
I've got 3 OTA tivos connected this way to 3 Samsung LED tvs
