    Foxtel HD STB with Series 1 Tivo

    Hello gents. I'd quite like to get the new HD-only channels such as 7mate.
    Presently have a satellite Foxtel SD STB and considering replacing it with an HD version.
    Appears Foxtel doesn't have any non IQ HD STBs but am hoping I can get the STB and decline the IQ function.
    Any ideas if this can be done? Foxtel are struggling to understand my questions.
    Cheers. Rob.

    Sorry but the IQ box cannot be easily controlled by TiVo. It needs a hardware translator to make it work, check this thread.

    Otherwise you maybe better getting a new TiVoHD for FTA currently some are available for $349 for a limited time.

    Peter.
    Please search this forum and our Website for your TiVo questions before starting a new thread. Thanks!

    Hi Pete. Thanks for your reply. As always, you're most helpful and it's appreciated.
    I have the additional input mod so looks like it'll be easier to buy an HD FTA STB. Will also mean I remain out of contract with F#@$tel.
    I get a kick out of not paying for an EPG (no disrespect to IceTV), which I call my hard disk fund. So I won't be going the TiVoHD route for a good long while.
    Thanks again. Rob.
