Advertisements I'm not sure how many of us there are out there, but I use my rooftop antennae to obtain TV. It has dawned on me that my two TiVo Series 2 boxes will become obsolete on Feb 17, 2009, unless someone comes up with a method of interfacing the Series 2 sets with the upcoming DTV Broadcast Converter boxes. Here's the dilemma as I understand it. In order for the Series 2 to work, it must manage the tuning of the channels. However the new DTV converters will have their own tuners. 1. Am I correct that if the Series 2 can't tune the channel, it will simply not work? 2. Is there even a physical method resident in the Series 2 to operate an external tuner in a device like the proposed DTV Converter boxes? Can you connect a cable between them? Infrared? I don't think so. 3. Will there be a version of the DTV Converter boxes that converts the new Digital-Over-the-Air (OTA) signals to something that looks to the Series 2 like a cable TV signal? If so, then it seems that all I'd need to do is connect the DTV box, then change my receive-signal type in the Series 2 from antennae to cable. That sounds perfect! 4. Is there any other solution? I really want to keep both my Series 2 sets (one of which is a lifetimer), and my current televisions, without having to subscribe to a commercial service, or replace my TiVos and TVs! I'm sure hoping that TiVo steps up to this to make sure that those of us in this situation are not left in the dust. TiVo needs to ensure that there is a Series 2 solution that works with at least some (and preferably all) of the DTV Converter boxes that will be offered beginning in 2008. Thanks.
