Hi Paul O

 

Thanks for the update!  Since you won't be playing DVDs, you won't need to connect video cables to the TV so that frees up the 2 HDMI ports for your TiVo and DVR.  I would recommend continuing with the  setup outlined above.  

 

Warm Regards,

Tony A

Hi Paul O

 

Thanks for writing in!  

 

Do you still happen to use the DVD player built into the system?  If not, you can connect your TiVO and DVR devices directly to the TV with the HDMI cables.  From here, you can connect an optical cable from your TV to the media center if your TV has any audio output connections.  If you decide to use optical, you can follow the steps HERE to set it up. 

 

Warm Regards,

Hi Tony,

I will be using the DVD player built into the system, primarily for CDs.

Does this answer change your advice?
