Virgin Tivo Box HDMI vs Scart

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all safe.

I have a question regarding my Virgin Tivo box (apologies I'm not very techie), so this may seem a silly question to most of you.

I'm looking to upgrade my old TV. Currently my Virgin Tivo box is connected to my TV (well old) using a scart lead. Looking now at replacement TVs there seem very few seem that have a scart connection.

Here's my question. Ive noticed that on the back of my existing Tivo box there is a HDMI port. Could I buy a new TV with no scart option (therefore not use the scart lead anymore) and use my existing Virgin Tivo box as is, but connect the Tivo box to a more modern TV using the HDMI Tivo port and the HDMI connection on a new TV?

If I can it would be great. Failing that I may need to upgrade my Virgin box?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hello

Yes you can connect your TV to the HDMI connection on the back of the Tivo.

Hi Mark,

That's great news thank you for the quick reply.

I can now look at non (so many more options) scart TVs.

Stay safe.
