    Howdy all,
    Yay! Just got my very first TiVo, a S2 DT box, up and running! Already scheduled a few kids shows and sitcoms for recording @ "Basic" quality to see if that's watchable. I didn't have a second composite red/white/yellow cable when setting up, so I went with the included coax for "out to TV". I've got Time Warner Digital Sci Atlanta Explorer 2000 box and a plain ol' Philips 27" Color TV. No fancy sound system. Is the coax good enough, or can I improve in this area? Thanks in advance :) -Mike

    Coaxial is probably good enough, but it depends on your TV and the over the air interference you'll get from the real channel 3 or 4.

    You might want to split the cable going into the digital receiver so that you can hook the analog cable directly up to your TV for even more flexability, in which case you'd need that extra set of A/V cables.

    Do yourself a big favor and get another set of composite cables, but if your TV has s-video input I'd use that.
