I've just recentley purchased FIOS and i can't seem to get my tivo to work with it, anyone out there that can help with setup?  I've tried switching around all my cables, but i still can not get the cable to show up on my tivo input, it keeps giving me an error that it can't find Basic Cable in, any help???

What model TIVO do you have?  If it is one with only an analog tuner it will not receive any channels as FiOS is all digital.  You would need a STB in front of your TIVO in order to  record anything if it doesn't have a QAM tuner and accept a cable card (for anything other than the local channels).

I have a Tivo Series 2, single tuner, is there anyway to get it to work with Fios?

You can get a Digital Adapter from Verizon (DCA700) and use a Tivo IR Blaster to control it.  The DCA700 will connect to the Tivo via Coax Cable.  I have been trying a similar setup with an Older ReplayTV.  I can get the Replay TV to see the Input from the box but have not had any luck with the IR Control yet.  I am waiting for a new IR Balster to arrive as I believe that mine was no longer working.

Minor correction, the digital adapter model is DCT-700.
