somebody asked me, but i wasn't sure.

so, if i have a regular external tivo box, and i'm watching a hi-def show, does the tivo just record it at standard definition quality?

or can it even record it at all?

Whatever HDTV receiver you are using would have to have a downconverted, NTSC output, which the Tivo would record as usual. Some of them can't output HD & NTSC at the same time, unfortunately.
