    This should not be a problem... but I am assuming that you have had the tuner mode done... otherwise your TiVo will have trouble receiving the PAL signal. I have an RF feed from an antenna run into a UK TiVo, whose RF output runs into the RF input of a US TiVo (whose tuner has been replaced), whose RF output runs into the TV. Of course there is also a splitter at the beginning of the chain that splits the RF cable so that it can also run to a ITX system to do "other stuff"

    Unfortunately not.

    Wrong carrier signals in PAL RF to work with a USA TiVo tuner. You can do it but as mentioned you need the NTSC tuner in the USA TiVo replaced.
