    Anybody successful hooking one of these things up to their home theater system?

    It should hook through the receiver/amp, then to the tv, but I get nothing this way. And if I hook it direct to the tv then no sound system.

    Sounds like an HDCP issue. Is your TV and or AVR 4K/hdr?

    Tv’s 4K, AVR is also 4K. I get sound but no picture. I think I may have figured out how to do it. I’ll hook the TiVo up to the tv the use a digital optic cord from the tv to the AVR.

    You should just run a 2.0 hdmi 18 gbps cable out from your tivo to cab/sat. input on your av receiver,then run another hdmi cable to your tv. i have been doing this for 20 years using tivos .I now use tivo bolt vox running into my marantz av receiver and when i watch you tube ,netflix or amazon prime i get dolby atmos sound.
