HD TiVo is a DVR-based service that allows you to record programming onto a built-in hard drive in the digital video recorder. TiVo works freely from your local cable or satellite provider, so you don't need to rent a receiver from your service provider. Although the TiVo is designed for one television, it is possible to hook up the device to two different TV, without the aid of any splitter cables, and you don't even need two different HDTVs to receiver the audio and video programming.

Things you need

  1. 1

    Insert the HDMI cable into the "HDMI Out" on the rear of the HD TiVo receiver. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the "HDMI In" port on the high-definition television.

  2. 2

    Plug the component video cables--made up of a red, green and blue cables--into the "Component Out" ports on the TiVo receiver. Connect the other ends to the "Component In" ports on the TV. These cables send both standard- and high-definition video signals, so you are able to use this connection on both SD and HD televisions.

  3. 3

    Attach the RCA audio cables--made up of a red and white cables--into the "Audio Out" ports, located next to the "Component Out" ports, on the TiVo receiver. Connect the opposite ends of the cables into the "Audio In" ports on the second TV.

  4. 4

    Power on the first TV, select "Input" and choose "HDMI," or the input that the HDMI cable is using. Turn on the second television, select "Input," then choose "Component Video," or the input that the component video cables are using. The TiVo programming loads onto both connected television sets.
