    Does anyone know of a DirecTv receiver that also has a digital coax output??

    I'm looking to upgrade my std receiver to a Tivo unit, but my Pioneer receiver only has digital coax inputs, so I'll need a directv unit that is compatible... unless there is someway to convert an optical line to a coax line that I'm not aware of.

    Thanks.

    AFAIK, there's only optical on the directivo units, and most directv receivers that I've seen. You can buy a converter that will convert optical to coax, though.

    Next question - is there an adapter that allows me to connect multiple connections to a SINGLE digital coax input on my receiver??

    I was using the MIDIMAN CO2. It will convert optical to coax and vise versa. You can go to midiman.com for more info.

    Actually I want to sell it since I no longer need it. Feel free to email me if interested!
