    Does your TV have other inputs? HDMI? component (blue/green/red with audio red/white)? You can connect directly to the TV separately on each input.

    If your TV has several HDMI inputs,

    You connect the Tivo to 1 input of the TV, Let's say this is HDMI #1.

    Connect the DVD to another HDMI, Let's say this is HDMI #2.

    To watch from Tivo, just switch the input on the TV to HDMI 1, and use Tivo remote to control.
    The DVD can stay off.

    To watch from DVD, switch to HDMI 2, and use the DVD remote to control.


    If you connect Tivo to DVD to TV, you have to turn on the DVD to watch either DVD or Tivo.
