Installation Instructions Essentials

Print this page


Setting up your TiVo DVR is easy! Just connect it to your programming source (cable, antenna, etc.), your TV, and your home network (or to a phone line if you do not have a home network). Then plug it in and follow the on-screen instructions to complete Guided Setup.

The best place to start is with the Start Here poster included in your TiVo DVR package. The Start Here poster shows basic connections between your TiVo DVR, your TV, and your home network. Once you have your basic setup, you can add additional components, like a home theatre or surround sound system, or a DVD recorder or VCR.

Start by locating your DVR model in the list below:
