Well after setting up MYSKY last week I have now found myself and in a tricky situation as I didnt realise that MYSKY dont have subtitles. I am a little annoyed as I did ring them a few months ago and asked whether MYSKY could record programmes with subtitles, they correctly said no, but never mentioned  that MYSKY doesn't actually have subtitles! I found this strange as I am sure others have said MYSKY does have subtitles.

Anyway, to appease the household, ie wife, I now need to fix this situation and am considering Tivo (I am going to keep MYSKY) and wonder what would be the best and easiest way to set this up.

Anyone got this combo working?

If your TV has two or more HDMI ports, it would be a matter of simply connecting the tivo and mysky to those ports and switching between them as required.

As cokemaster has said, its as simple as plugging them both in. Unless you have a TV with only one HDMI input? What model TV do you have?

I didnt think it would have been that simple. My TV has 2 HDMI cables so looks like it's all going to work.
