    I have a Series 2 Dual Tuner Tivo and recently moved into a new building. In the apartment, there is only one coaxial coming from the wall, and it hooked up to both my cable box and computer (for internet). They already split the cable coming from that wall to go to both the tv and computer. How can I hook my tivo up? Is there someway to split the cable again? Any help would be appreciated.

    So basically I'll have a two-way splitter and a three-way splitter attached to the cable source?

    Replace the 2-way splitter with a 3-way splitter. Or, split one lead with another 2-way splitter.

    Would it be possible to walk me step-by-step through this? I'm a little confused.

    Get another two way splitter and connect it to the coax feeding the cable box. Then take one of those outputs and connect it to the cable box. The other one connects to one input on the DT TiVo. The other input on the DT is connected to the output of the cable box.
