    HELP! I just bought a TiVo Series2 Dual Tuner box under the assumption that I would be able to tape two DirecTV channels simultaneously. I obviously didn't read the fine print in the TiVo ad (my major error). I would have to believe I'm not the first one to do this. The obvious question: Is there any way around this? Or am I just stuck?

    There's no way around it.

    You could return your Series 2 DT Tivo and buy a DirecTV/Tivo instead. Both the older DirecTV/Tivos and the newer DirecTV DVRs feature dual tuners.

    Only the Directv/Tivo units and Newer Directv DVR units have Dual Tuners and can record Two Shows at once.

    The Tivo Series 2 DT cannot do this.

    What is this "tape" thing you talk about?

    BTW, I'll reply again in your duplicate thread. :)
