From what I have found, HDMI should not be used
at this juncture. Either DTV has output issues,
or HDTV's are having input issues. Either way,
I try any other source for HD other than HDMI.

Ditto. And Gefen, who make some pretty neat HDMI products, responded to my request for detailed information on how I might expect HDMI products to interact, control-wise, responded by waiting two weeks, then sending me a catalog with no technical specs, and not even retail pricing.

Tivo has its problems. The biggest problem is
that other DVRs suck MORE. The best ones don't
exist anymore, and they were only partly better
than Tivo. It was a toss-up.

I have Replay, which was the primary competition for TiVo, and wow, does it ever suck way much more, extremely.

Winston Churchill once said that the worst type of government is democracy, except for all the other types. There is definitely something way worse than TiVo. I long for the nice remote (you have to hit buttons two or three times on the Replay and it takes forever for the unit to respond) of the TiVo.

On the other hand, we got three Replays from a friend who does commercial installs and they cost me nothing. Sometimes when you get something for free, you don't appreciate it. If I had had to pay for these, though, I would seriously want to hurt someone.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
