I've had Tivo for 8 months with regular Time Warner cable. I just switched to Direct TV. The guys who came over to install it decided to tell me that their DVR service was better than Tivo, so they hooked it up. Come to find out, a) their DVR sucks compared to Tivo....hands down. b) if I want to use my Tivo, I can't record a show and watch something else at the same time. I asked a Tivo person about this, and she told me in not so many words to come to this website and seek your help. Apparently she's not legally allowed to tell me how to hook up my Tivo with my Direct TV to get it to work the way it worked before with Time Warner. Can somebody please help me out?
