Re: [TiVo] DC RCN TiVO Q and Preview Launch

Is it true that the Tivo Preview (the daughter box) has no digital audio out? In other words, is the audio output limited only to HDMI?

Sadly, that may prove a deal killer for me, as we have not as yet updated all of our audio receivers and TV's to HDMI.

Sadly, it turns out to be TRUE that the only digital audio output on the Tivo Preview is HDMI.

In other words, there is no way to stream Dolby Digital on the TIVO Preview other than HDMI.

IMO lacking S/PDIF or TOSlink audio out, the new Tivo Preview box is of limited application and not a worthy replacement for the existing Tivo Premiere.
