I have the DVR setup and also cable coming into my tv.

I have a Tivo that I would also like to use, maybe on the cable channels. Could someone give me some help on how to get all this to work together?

The cable with the Tivo
and the satellite for the DirectTV DVR


Thanks for any help on this. I also have a VCR that I tape shows I want off of the DVR, Is there a way I can setup the TIvo to also work on the same VCR?

Thanks again.

We would need more information, like:
* brand/model TV
* what sort of inputs does your TV have?

If your TV has enough inputs, it's just a matter of connecting ....
* DirecTV DVR to one set of TV Audio/Video inputs
* Cable TV cable to your Tivo
* Tivo's AV ouputs to another set of TV AV inputs

Connecting the VCR to record from either the DVR or the Tivo gets a bit tricky, again depending on how many and what sort of inputs it has. Your DVR and Tivo should both have a second set of AV ouputs that you can connect to the VCR's AV inputs. Then you need to connect the VCR to the TV, provided the TV has 3rd set of AV inputs.

If your TV doesn't have that many inputs, your best bet is to get an AV Receiver.
