    Hello.
    I have the Sony Ultimate TV receiver and I just upgraded to HDTV. is there any way to continue to use my tivo service from my old receiver? I have not bought an HDTV reciever yet, but I am thinking of getting the Sony Hd-100 and I am hoping they thought about my situation. Any new products on the horizon that I should wait for? Whata re my options?
    TIA,
    Aaron

    Aaron,
    I don't have UltimateTV or TiVo, but I do have a SatHD100. If I understand Tivo correctly & your question, then the answer is not really. The HD 100 can only output either thru the component outs OR thru the S-vid, RCAs, not at the same time. This is not Sonys fault, this is per specification of DirecTV receivers, at least that's what I've read.
    A good review of the Sat HD100 that addresses this is at :
