How to Connect a U-verse With My TiVo Series 2

Save

AT&T U-Verse cable comes with a DVR option. If you prefer to use TiVo as your DVR service, you will need to connect the TiVo box to the U-Verse cable box. The installation is standard except the AT&T U-Verse cable box doesn't have a 9-pin serial port to connect the necessary TiVo channel changing cable, so you will need to use the channel changing/IR cable instead. The IR cable has two emitters, that instead of plugging into the U-Verse cable box, must lay around the box.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 coaxial cable
  • 2 RCA cables
  • 1 channel changing/IR cable
  • Connect a RF Splitter to the coaxial cable coming from the cable jack on the wall. The RF Splitter will allow you to connect two coaxial devices, the TV and cable box, to one cable wall jack.

  • Connect two coaxial cables to the RF splitter.

  • Connect one of the connected coaxial cables to the "To Wall-Video In" jack on the rear of the U-Verse cable box. Connect the other connected coaxial cable to the "Cable In" jack on the rear of the TiVo box.

  • Insert the red, white and yellow jacks on the RCA cable into the "Video/Audio Out" ports on the rear of the U-Verse cable box. Insert the other end of the RCA cable into the matching "Audio In" ports on the TiVo box.

  • Connect the second RCA cable into the matching red, yellow and white ports in the "Audio Out" section of the TiVo box. Connect the other end of the second RCA cable into the matching ports in the "Audio In" section of the television set.

  • Insert the jack of the channel changing/IR cable, that came with the TiVo, into the "Channel Changing Serial" port on the rear of the device. Place one of the emitters on top of the U-Verse cable box, and place the other emitter underneath the U-Verse cable box. Make sure the tips of the emitters are sticking out about 1 1/2 inches from the front of the cable box.

  • Insert the power cords into both the cable box and TiVo box, and plug the cords into the power outlet.
