Hooking up a DVD player

I have two questions:

1 - I only have one set of jacks on the back of my tv. Currently the tivo is hooked into them. I want to hook up my dvd player but how can i do that with only one set of jacks.

2 - Can you plug a external DVD burner into the Tivo and have it copy shows or do you have to use a DVD recorder?


Thanks

Use a multi switch like the one pictured below to connect both Tivo and DVD to the same single input on your TV.

By DVD-burner I assume you mean something connected to the USB port on the TiVo. You can't do that. You have to either use TiVoToGo and burn shows using your PC, or hookup a DVD-recorded to the analog outputs on the TiVo and record with that.
