TiVO & HD?

Is there any way to set up my satellite connection so that I can use my TiVO (Standard Definition) and also use the HD reciever?

I already own a TiVO and don't feel like spending $600+ on a new HD DVR. I don't care if I can record/rewind HD programming, but would like to still recieve HD via satellite.

Thanks for the help!

You can run an SVideo cable from the STB to your Tivo Aux In, and record a downconverted version of the currently viewed channel.

So you would be able to toggle between video 1 and video 2 on the TV with one of the video's being HD and one being SD TiVO?

Yes, you'll need to connect an SVideo cable from the Tivo to the TV, too, of course...
