Sorry about that -- two inputs for a DTivo, I was thinking of stand-alone.
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

Scott makes an important point -- if there is ANY chance you'll need more than four inputs down the road, have D* install the 4x8 multiswitch. Even if you have to pay them a little extra, the convenience of getting this done in advance is big. Adding a multiswitch later is certainly doable but you might as well have D* install it for you.
