    HI guys,

    I've been searching for this answer as its pretty frustrating.. Is there ANY way to disable the buffering/delay on the RCA input on the back of the Tivo? Trying to hook up my old xbox (I got a 360 now :D) with XBMC to the Tivo.. And use that on my TV since I only have one input.. The delay is obviously bad with the buttons.

    Am I SOL?

    <3 and happy new year!

    Anything you pass through a TiVo will have that delay. There is no way around it. It is because the input is being encoded, recorded and then decoded for display.

    You'll need to get an AV switch.
