    does your TV have more than one set of inputs? The TiVo and a DVD player would connect independently to the TV. The cable box next to the TiVo. That makes three sets of cables.

    Did you check the front of your TV for inputs too?

    If you need more inputs, you can buy a switchbox that lets you hook up several sets of cables into one input. (Like a USB hub.) The one I have requires you to switch manually between which sets of cables you want to use. That would be less of a pain than unhooking and re-hooking up the cables though.
