Just installed a comcast digital cable box and had a question regarding the IR ports.

TIVO has a IR out and Comcast has an IR in, Can I take a male to male connector wire and connect these together.

Otherwise I guess I have to take the TIVO IR cable and set it up as instructed but this is always a problem (works like 95% of the time and usually looks messy. I was hoping to make the connection wired and have superior IR control and less wires and stick on tape. :)

Try using a direct connect cable from the series 2 Tivo to control you DTA or cable box instead of the IR Blasters...

This is a good cable I use....

No you cant hardwire the two devices together with wire and plugs.. this actually has an IC chip inside to do the communications.

This cable works well for me and is inexpensive :bounce:
