does not support converter boxes, only set-top
satellite and cable boxes. If you have a cable or satellite
set-top box that you want to connect to your TiVo, you can
use an IR-blaster to send signals from the TiVo to the
set-top box to change channels so that you are on the
correct channel to record.
You can connect your converter box to a video
device, such as a VCR or DVD player, then
connect the VCR or DVD player to the TV.
Note
If you have a VCR connected to the TV to record TV
programs, you must set the channel on the converter box to
the TV channel you want to record.
If you have programmed recordings set up, you must set the
channel on the converter box to the TV channel for the
programmed recording before the start of each recording
session.
