    My brother has just bought an iDTV with freeview built in (a 32" Sony CRT). He has asked me to connect it all up for him but Im stumped as to how to get the Tivo to 'see' the freeview. There is a coaxial output and input to link the internal freeview and analogue tuners. I was hoping I could just use these, but the Tivo keeps saying its not receiving a signal from the TV. I've repeated the guided setup and tried selecting analogue + from the setup options, but it stalls when setting up the remote signal becuase it cannot detect an input signal.

    Is there any way i can get a Tivo to work with the in-built tuner on a TV?

    Buy a separate digibox to use with the TiVo. What you are trying to do is just not possible. If it was you would have to leave the TV on 24/7 and then whenever the TiVo tried to record, it would switch the tv channel away from what was being displayed.
