    I have looked everywhere and talked to stores selling TIVO's but cannot get an answer as to how you hookup a S3 TIVO box to Verizon FIOS cable?

    I have been using Direct TV since it came out and have used Ultimate TV and now a Direct TIVO box with dual tuners. I cannot live without it but I want to move up to HD and FIOS is available in my area now. If I go to FIOS and purchase a S3 TIVO, how do you set the tivo to talk to dual tuners? Do I have to get 2 FIOS boxes and use IR or is there a better solution? Nobody seems to be able to answer how to set this up.

    Can anyone on this forum point me in the right direction?

    The S3 does not use cable boxes. You would need two cable cards from Verizon to use the dual tuners. There are many Fios threads in the Series 3 part of this forum if you want much more information.
