12. TiVo > 12.1. Hacks 94–100

Hacks 94–100

Strictly speaking, TiVo and recording television shows aren’t part of a home theater. Realistically, though, I don’t know how anyone into watching movies and TV could live without a TiVo, so this chapter belongs in this book as much as any other.

For the most part, TiVo works into the home theater equation as just another device to program into the remote control; there really isn’t anything special you’ll have to do to ensure TiVo works with your cable or satellite receiver.

Tip

In the days of VCR recording, things were much trickier, as you would have to pipe the input audio and video signals through a receiver or processor, out another set of inputs, and into your VCR. With TiVo being self-contained and built into most DirecTV receivers, things are far easier.
