I have a Humax Series 2 TiVo with the DVD player in it. The DVD player has stopped working (for about 3/4th of a year). Instead of spending to get this fixed as I will eventually, I'm trying to use the other inputs to the TiVo and connecting them to a DVD player. What I want to do is tell the TiVo to switch to these inputs when I want. Right now I have the DVD player connected to the front s-video and r/l audio inputs. I CAN do this but ONLY IF I tell the TiVo I am doing a timed recording from a VCR. I don't really want to do this. I'd rather just tell it to get it's input from the front. I can also hook this up to the rear too as those inputs are available. The cable signal we use is from a DirecTV receiver. I do realize that there is probably no way to switch to the other alternate inputs, whether front or rear, without stopping any planned recordings from DirecTV. It would be great if we could but mostly, we just don't want to record the movies onto the TiVo. There is not input button that came on the TiVo remote. There is a TV input but that's different. I figured there may be a Select Play Select code that could do it. Any help appreciated.
