This solves everything. The Series 3 TIVO is probably the most underrated piece of equipment on the market today. You will be able to connect via HDMI, and the Series 3 records in HD with THX audio. The Series 3 is absolutely FANTASTIC. I just connected it to the new Sony 70 inch XBR2 yesterday and the picture will blow you away. The "free" DVR's are TRASH. Thats why they are "free"
I recently got a new satellite HD DVR, I used to run the old satellite a/v through my TiVo then the TiVo a/v into my receiver for surround sound. Since the new HDTV is installed on a different component I can't feed the audio through TiVo when I watch HD because the sound doesn't sync. This means I have to swich back & forth between my TiVo source (to watch TiVo) and my HDTV source (to watch HDTV), which is a pain. So I have to either give up my TiVo or keep switching back & forth.
Does anyone out there know if there is such a thing as an a/v cable that will allow me to plug the audio into 2 separate sources (one into my TiVo and the other into my receiver)? I've tried searching but haven't been able to find anything, maybe I'm just using the wrong terminology, at any rate I'm pretty close to just creating one myself by splicing a couple of RCA cables together but I'm afraid this will really compromise the sound quality.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
