    I have just gotten FIOS and have their Motorola QIP7100 set top box. I would like to connect my Series 1 to it.

    On the TIVO is see an IR out port, and on the QIP7100 I see an IR in port. It would be too easy if I could just connect the 2 devices via a mono plug.

    So I'm guessing that I will need to use the IR transmitter that shipped with the TIVO.

    I'm hoping that someone has been down this path before and can share their insights.

    DON'T hard-wire them together. The voltages etc won't match.

    One of the members here designed a custom cable that acts as an adapter between a TiVo and most DTAs (see but I have no idea if it would work on on your FIOS box.

    If you want to throw money around

    will let you take it and the TiVo's IR out cable and make a DIY opto-isolator.

    I'm guessing this S1 is lifetimed.

    Thanks for the input.

    The S1 has a lifetime subscription.

    Eventually I will get a new premier model But for now, I am trying keep things inexpensive.

    I'd double check with Gary Gray, but I suspect his cable would be what you need.

    When I had Comcast it worked perfectly with a little DTA cable box they'd given me (and my TiVo Series 1).

    First they made pizza of tuna and
    then the windows were opened.
