The home theatre system or the A/V receiver may also render the support video connections. If this is the case, then you can head to link video from the TiVo DVR to the A/V receiver or home theatre system.

Requirements

There is a principle that you require to remember when you head to link all the A/V devices: ALWAYS link the OUT jacks of a single device to the IN jacks of the next. NEVER link In to IN or OUT to OUT.

Stereo Audio

There are some of the TiVo DVR models that have the white and red stereo audio output jacks, and other will require the usage of a breakout cable. Just head to use the white and red ends of a Composite A/V cable (included in the TiVo DVR carton) or a red and white stereo audio cable to link the TiVo DVR to any one of the stereo audio inputs on the A/V receiver or home theatre system.

Note: Do remember that the A/V receiver and home theatre system is turn on and then choose the right input when you are watching the shows from the TiVo DVR.

Digital Audio

There are some of the TiVo DVRs which have the optical digital audio output jacks. In the case, if your A/V receiver or home theatre system supports the digital audio and then uses an optical digital audio cable to link the TiVo DVR to the optical digital audio input on home theatre system or A/V receiver.

Note: Do remember that the A/V receiver and home theatre system is turn on and then choose the right input when you are watching the shows from the TiVo DVR.

Video

If the A/V receiver or home theatre system provides supports to the video connections, then head to use the yellow end of a Composite A/V cable to easily link the video from TiVo DVR to the video input jack on the A/V receiver or the home theatre system.

For getting the better quality of the video, just head to access an S-Video cable if the system provides the support. And if you have got a Series HD DVR or TiVo HD, just head to use a HDMI cable or Component Video cable for the high-definition video, if your A/V receiver or the home theatre system supports the HD video.

If you decide to link the video to the A/V receiver or home theatre system instead of directly to the TV, ensure that you are using the similar input for the video as you use for the audio.

After following the steps, if you get any tech barrier, then you can head to the TiVo Support team to get the professional’s assistance and support.
