  • Help me understand directv to TiVo hookup

    I have no experience with TiVo. I've always just used a directv dvr.
    I am now forced to use a satellite dome on my boat that does not support any of DTVs recorders. The only receiver I can use is a h24. Now I obviously can't record from the h24, so how can I record programs that the h24 receives? A TiVo after the receiver?

    Yes, you could put a TiVo at the H24. It would have to be a standard definition TiVo from here:

    but it will need to connect to TiVo via internet or phone line.

    Why can't you use an HR24 there?

      No permanent internet or phone lines on the boat.
      Kvh m7 domes will not support any receiver but h24
      M7 only receives sad songs no big deal

          I can't say I've ever seen a dish that supports H24 but not HR24 set up with one SAT input. I'd just get an HR24. Otherwise, you'll need to get a TiVo to connect to the internet occasionally to get guide data.
