I am considering the purchase of a Tivo® (TIV648250B) Series3 HD 300-Hr. Digital Media Recorder. I would need this to record from either a ViP222 high-definition receiver or a ViP211 high definition receiver bought through Dish Network.
Connect the HD set HD inputs to the HD out of the satellite reciver (either component+audio or HDMI).
Connect S-video+audio to the TiVo A/V in, same form TiVo to TV's SD input. IR blaster form TiVo to satellite receiver. Being as the receiver will tune one signal, you would have to choose between TiVo recording and HD.
IMO, get a separate SD saellite box just for the TiVo to control.
