First the TivoHD will not work with any Satellite company. It will only work with cable and OTA HD...sgtstadanko said:Hey All,
I am fed up with the price/quality of my cable provider and am considering switching to direcTV. I have 2 series 2 standalone boxes. i have read that directv and tivo sa boxes will work together...i just want to see if there are any gotchas or things I havent considered. right now i do not have an HD television but may get one and a tivohd in the future. will this work as well. i just dont want to get stuck using the crap stock dvr from directv and cannot live w/o my tivos! right now we use the to play music, tivo2go and moving programs from one room to the other. i assume this will all still work as before.
thanks for any advice,
DTV and Tivo boxes that are series2 will work fine, you will use an infared dongle for the tivo to change the channels on the Directv boxes, this slows down channel changing some but that is it....
