Ordinarily, having the UHF signal going directly to the TiVO box is OK.
However, if I cannot change channels without affecting 2 recodings going on, then can I simply switch to the Freeview box inside the TV.
Is so, what do I need to split the signal i.e. one aerial to the TV and the other to the TiVo box.
Would a simple 2 way splitter be OK?
Should I be doing this as I don't want to degrade the signal going to the TiVo box.

If you have not had any issues with drop outs etc
( ie your signal quality is good) then what you propose will do fine.

I have a powered amplifier for my antenna, the signal then splits to TV and TiVo, this works fine.

I do the same, split the signal to the TiVo and the TV's digital tuner. No problems with reception at all.
Basically, buy a splitter of DSE, try it out, and if it works all good, if not 14 day right of return.
