    Hi,

    I would like to have a Tivo Series 3 and a DirecTV HD receiver together.

    Can those two boxes function properly together ?

    Yuval.

    No. The S3 does not work with satellite.

    DirecTV and Dish Network refuse to provide Tivo with access to their encryption systems. Until that changes, you will not see a high-definition Tivo supporting those services.

    It depends what you mean by function together.

    If you have both cable and D* service, the S3 can receive the cable and the D* box can receive the D* signals.

    Neither box can receive the signals for the other service.

    I currently have both cable and D* service. I use a S3 for the cable and both a HR10 and HR20 for D*.

    The only changes I needed to do for this to work was to change the remote address code for the S3 to 1 and the HR10 to 2. Otherwise, the remote would make changes to both boxes whenever I tried to use it.
