    I have a Dish 6000 which is connected to my Lexicon MC-8 for audio(optical). I was given a Tivo but can't decide how to connect it. I don't care if its only 2 channel for recordings but when I'm watching live I want 5.1 if it is available for that show. I have the HD connected directly to the Monitor (component), the SD (S-video) out of the dish goes to the MC-8. How do I connect? Thanks for the help.

    Stand alone Tivos don't record Dolby Digital. You have to bypass it completely for DD to work correctly.
