How do I connect my TiVo to Apple TV

I have just upgraded my Apple TV. I use to connect to my TiVo box via optical cable and a 3 way spitter. The new Apple TV doesn't have a optical cable facility. Advice please.

Why would you want to connect a Apple TV to your TiVo box?

That's how I access my Apple TV. Perhaps I should have said I am playing the Apple TV and TiVo via Bose system.

Re: How do I connect my TiVo to Apple TV

Thanks that's helpful.  Can I check? I connect this device to my TiVo box. And then connect to Apple TV via html cable.

Re: How do I connect my TiVo to Apple TV

Sadly no. Great picture but no sound.

Any ideas. My TiVo box is quite old. Do later versions have the ability to play TV and Apple TV?

thanks again for your input.

Re: How do I connect my TiVo to Apple TV

I have Apple TV but not enough hdmi ports on the back of the telly so I use thishttp://www.amazon.co.uk/Neet®-4K-HDMI-Switch-IR/dp/B00V6GFY1W/ref=sr_1_5?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=14515859...

 (the Apple TV doesn't go thru the TiVo I don't have a Bose system though) 

also see this re lack of sound  can be a problem with Apple TV 

If you hear static or if you don't hear any sound on your Apple TV

Adjust your audio settings and check the audio after each step:
On your Apple TV, select Settings > Audio & Video.
Make sure Audio Out is set to Apple TV.
Change the Audio Mode from Auto to 16 bit.
On Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation), change the Dolby Digital Out setting from On to Off.
If there's no sound when you navigate the menu, choose Settings > Audio & Video and make sure that Sound Effects and Music is on.
