    First of all, I have a Series 2 TiVo.

    In my room all I have is an old TV and a TiVo, and I just recently got a DVD player to add to it -- no other receivers or cable boxes or anything are in this room.

    Unforuntately my TV only has RF input, one RCA input, and S-Video input. Right now I have my cable going to TiVo and I use my S-Video for video and the RCA for audio.

    I notice the TiVo has an RCA input but I can't figure out how to get it to work. I tried hooking my DVD player into it but there is no way to get the A/V feed away from what is coming in through the wall.

    How can I watch a DVD using this set-up? Or will I have to get some sort of switch? I know the TiVo has the RCA input, but I can't figure out for the life of me on how to get it to work.

    Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks!

    The RCA inputs are for hooking up a cable box or satellite receiver to the TiVo. It won't do pass-through to your TV.

    You can get an inexpensive video switch from just about anywhere. Radio Shack, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.
