Hello,

Possibly TWO SCART switches! That would allow one box to be routed through
the recording device and the other direct to the TV. It depends on how you
want them to work and what inputs you have on the TV and also the TIVO.

Buy A post October 2003 Quintro...

Then

FREEVIEW - QUIN-SAT
TIVO-IN - QUIN-VCR
SKY DIGITAL - QUIN-LD
TIVO-OUT - QUIN-DVD

Lock the Video Output to Freeview (or Sky Digital - whichever you'll be
recording from)

To Watch TV select "DVD" - just don't send that to the TiVo or it will
try and record itself!

Then use the QUIN-TV to connect to TV-RGB1

That should say "To Watch TiVo" not "To Watch TV"

The solutions that other people have provided seem a bit complicated.
This is how I'd do it.

Assuming you want to record from Sky onto TiVo and watch FreeView.

Sky - TiVo's AUX scart.
FreeView - TiVo's VCR scart.
TiVo - TV's scart

TiVo will always record from Sky, if you ever want to watch something on
FreeView - press TiVo's VCR button.
