    Well, it seems to be working fine without the S video connected to anything.

    Just one more question: msmart pointed me to the thread about using the TiVo remote to control the DirecTV. Steve, I see that you suggest using remote code 10074. Where do I enter this code?

    I can use the TiVo remote to turn the TV on and off, but not to do anything with the DirecTV box.

    So there is no way to watch one channel and record another with my current configuration?

    Code 10074 did not work. I have examined my DirecTV box and cannot find a manufacturers name. Is there one manufacture who usually makes these boxes?

    No you would have to get one of the DirecTV DVRs or buy an older DirecTiVo to get 2 tuners to work with DirecTV.

    The "manufacturer" is DirecTV, but you could also try Hughes. 10074 should work.

    How about a model number? Did you look for a label on the bottom of the box? The label with the model number could be behind the door where the card goes.
