So my house just upgraded to DirecTV service and my room now has an HD DVR receiver. Therefore, replacing my old Series 2 TiVo box. My plan is to put the TiVo in the living room. Is this possible with a DirecTV receiver?

Pretty sure that would work

But you can only have one hooked up to the back of the tv. How would that work?

Well, I don't use DirecTV or TiVo. I have Comcast.

However, let me get this right.

You have 1 TV with a DirecTV DVR. So that is taken care of.
You want to use the existing Series2 TiVo you have with another DirecTV STB, right?

Hey thanks for the help. I actually only have a DirecTV receiver (not DVR). I'm trying to get the tivo working with my tv and DirecTV receiver.

Then those directions on TiVo's website should help.

I just don't get step 4. There is absolutely no way I can connect the RF coaxial cable from the antenna or cable source to the RF IN connector on the DVR simply because I don't know where the jack to connect it is located.
