    I cannot figure out how to make this work. I have a TV in the bedroom where I put a HDR212 Phillips Tivo and a Toshiba DVD player.

    DVD--->TIVO--->TV

    The DVD player is hooked up to the Tivo via svideo and stereo analog inputs. Same with the connection from the Tivo to the TV. Cable TV routes in to the Tivo via RF input.

    With that existing setup.. I cannot seem to watch DVDs. I even put the Tivo in Standby but still did not get a DVD signal..

    Is this even possible?

    Chris Tivo only has outputs, afraid not! You must have pluged into the extra output that's intended to go to a VCR...? Buy a video switcher and route them both thru it. I'm assuming the TV only has 1 video input. Welcome to the forum tenderfoot![​IMG] Best wishes!
