You'll want to have either 3-4 connections (2 for the satellite links
and 1 for an antenna feed) or you'll need to combine and split back out
the antenna feed. An HD Tivo box has 3 inputs: 2 satellite and 1 antenna.
If your TV has an HD tuner inside, you could attach another antenna feed
directly to it.
