It should be fine as you can set the Tivo's to record based on time just
like you would a VCR.  I presume there is no guide data for the satellite
TV reception.  Not sure how you get the signal to the Tivo.  Does the
satellite reception output a TV signal after you have received it?  Perhaps
you would need to use one of the SCART inputs - I think one's an input.
