  • Dual Tuner Question

    I currently have directv service but I only have 1 line run from my satellite dish. With a series2 tivo, will I still be able to watch live tv and record another show at the same time? I know it's possible with a directv tivo but what about with a series2?

    You'd need a DirecTV TiVo to make this work, and we have those here:
