    Hi,

    I'm considering a Tivo Premiere to replace our cable box but I can't find a key piece of information on the audio outputs. Our TV pre-dated HDMI by six months so we don't have HDMI ports.

    However we do have a DVI port so we've got HDMI coming off the cable box to a HDMI>DVI converter and then the audio is routed via component cable to the receiver.

    I've heard mixed reports that the Tivo may or may not send audio on the component outputs when the HDMI is connected. Can anyone verify?

    Thanks

    All outputs are active on a tivo.

    Perhaps a blessing in disguise.

    Does your TV have component video jacks (the red, green, blue ones) with accompanying red and white audio input jacks?

    However, will the HDMI->DVI converter do HDCP? I suspect not, and if that's true, you won't be able to use the HDMI output from the Tivo (unfortunately).

    I have my TiVo connect to my TV via HDMI->DVI converter. The sound is connected to my audio receiver. This setup works perfectly.
