Is it possible to connect two Series 2 Tivo's to one standard Definition TV?
Sure, if you have enough connection ports on your TV (e.g.: AV1, AV2, etc.) Otherwise, you could connect them via RF cable using a simple RF switch. That would reduce the video clarity but it would work. You would probably need to make sure that you use a Tivo remote with the 1/2 switch so you can separately control them.
...or an AVR or a video switch... I have a nifty little six port automatic video switch I got from Radio Shack I no longer use since converting to HD. I would be happy to let it go for $25 plus shipping. PM me if you are interested.
As I said, the TV is a standard definition type. It's from the mid 90's, so it only has one composite input.
Um, yeah, OK. What about either of our responses suggests to you we thought otherwise?
That's not relevant to how many inputs it has. Many TVs from the 80s and 90s had multiple composite inputs. I gave two of them away a couple of years ago, and I still have one from the early 1980s that has four video inputs.
Well this TV only have one composite input besides that coax cable input.
Easy peasy, one Tivo to composite, one to RF.
But I'd use a composite switch if it were me.
So this switch would allow both Tivo's to record different channels at the same time?
The switch enables you to view the output of two *T*i*V*o*s* on a TV with only one set of inputs. It has nothing to do with being able to record different channels. For that, you have to split the cable so that each TiVo has its own input.
A two-way RF splitter costs about $4, BTW.
