I realize this is a specific problem, but hoped there might be someone out there who has done this. I'm able to watch both now, but I do lose a lotta useability rather than add it!
I have a SA8300 as a cable box. It has recordings on it I still want to see before I return it to BH for a plain cable box with no recording.
I am returning to TiVo because I have missed the extra features that TiVo has. What I do not miss is the complexity of configuring it. The SA8300 is simple in both installation and features <g>
I hooked this up as a regular Cable Box and Tivo, and watch while recording. It doesn't work.
I have a 3-way splitter, and a RadioShack 4 way stereo A/V switchbox. I also have two sets of RCA cables.
Any suggestions of how to configure these so I can see and use my TiVo, and still, be able to switch over occasionally, to use the SA8300? I'm all trial-and-errored-out!
