-- Upgrading to HDTV TiVo Question (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=182325)

The newer dishes (Phase III) have four outputs (a multiswitch is integrated). All of the outputs can see any satellite position and polarity.

So you would use two of them for the SD TiVo (not one as someone posted earlier) and one for the HD receiver. But you will want four cables to be ready to add an HD TiVo if you also keep your SD TiVo.

The two TiVos will use all four outputs, so if you intend to also keep the HD receiver you should ask DirecTV to install an eight output multiswitch (they did that for me at no charge, but I have been a customer for 10 years)

You may also need a cable for OTA locals if you have an antenna.

No problem if you TV accepts multiple inputs, assuming you have an HDTV.

Added PS :
You would use S-Video from the SD TiVo and DVI from the HD receiver (or Component)

HR10-250 (Replaced Twice)
SAT-T60 146 hours.
Samsung 360 HD Receiver.
Mitsubishi WS-55313 RP HD monitor.
It's tough without TiVo.
