    You keep saying this. I didn't know Sony even made air conditioners, much less a/c receivers.

    You might get better results if you wrote in coherent, grammatical sentences in the English language. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_mDTLphIVY

    your tivo should connect with HDMI to the "SAT/CATV" input on your receiver.
    The receiver should be connected to the tv with an HDMI cable - go from the "TV Out" on the receiver to one of the inputs on the TV - remember which input you chose.

    Turn your receiver on and switch it to the SAT/CATV input. Turn your TV on and switch its input to the input you connected to above.

    That should be all there is to it. This is very basic stuff.

    Perhaps the OP doesn't understand he has to change the input when he goes from Tivo, to DVD, etc. Look at where the HDMI cable is plugged into the back of your receiver. On top of the input it have something like "SAT/CATV". Using the remote, press that button. If you want to watch your DVD, you'll need to switch inputs again using the remote to whatever input you have your DVD plugged into.

    He also has to (potentially) switch inputs on his TV. I assume the TV has multiple HDMI inputs - whichever one he is connected to will be the one that has to be chosen with the remote.

    Not sure, but I think this might have been the problem before - the TV was left on whatever input it happened to be on.

    Unfortunately, it only gets worse...check this out:

    http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=7978342#post7978342

    "I connected from the power cord to wireless n adapter and tried to connect it into the ethernal port but It didn't fit although I put it in the hdml port but I just bought the sony home theater system. I read an instrustion step 1 put the sony cable into the hdml port in the back of the tivo. Can anybody help me please?"

    And, http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?p=7978768#post7978768

    "Do I put an ethernal cable in the external storage e-sata port beside the cable card? Thanks"

    And, from above:

    "I switched the hmdi cable from tivo box and put the cable in the hdmi cable in the a/c receiver but I turned on the tv and saw there's no signal now. I tried everything but It won't work. What do I do?"

    I'll tell ya what to do:

    STEP AWAY FROM YOUR TIVO, YOUR "A/C" RECEIVER, AND YOUR TV!

    NEXT, PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL A FRIEND WHO HAS COMPLETE READING COMPREHENSION OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE TO READ THIS POST, AND THE SUGGESTIONS OF OTHERS HERE.

    LAST, SAY MANY PRAYERS TO YOUR SUPREME BEING THAT YOU DID NOT DESTROY SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS' WORTH OF ELECTRONICS BY TRYING TO FORCE CABLE PLUGS IN TO THE WRONG RECEPTACLES.

    God only knows if this guy wrecked his HDMI out port on the Tivo.

    This guy's posts are the very definition of RTFM.

    And HDMi makes things so much easier than 10 years ago when we had to use a 3 wire component cable for video and a toslink connection for audio. And then multiply that by several devices and it added up quickly. You can't get much easier than with an HDMI cable. One cable for audio and video is much, much better to deal with and eliminates alot of the clutter.

    I was so glad when I got my first HDMI TV and HDMI receiver in 2005. Then I could finally use the HDMI connections on my TiVos and swore off any more analog connections.

    Budweiser might be the King of Beers, but this guy seems to be the King of Trolls.

    Seriously, no one is dumb enough to try to put an "ethernal" (rather than ethernet) cable into the power outlet, the HDMI port, and the e-SATA port.

    Stop feeding the troll.:thumbsdown:
