    Get a cable box from knology and let your Series 2 control it with the IR blaster cable.

    As was mentioned, the only way to do that on an S2 is with a cable box. The S2 can only tune analog channels on its own.

    If knology is all digital, you will need at least a DTA. If it still has analog channels, a TiVo 2 should be able to access them. No HD, but you can't get HD on a TiVo 2 anyway.

    How can you discontinue your cable subscription and try to get local channels on it at the same time?

    If you actually want over the air channels on that S2, you need to see if there are any coupon boxes that can be controlled by the IR ouput of the TiVo.
