    The $149 box is a regular 2-tuner Premiere which supports analog & digital cable and digital OTA, so you should be fine.

    It is the Premiere 4 and the Premiere XL4 which work only on digital cable that would be problematic.

    Your Series 2 is tuning in analog cable channels, which means Charter in your area hasn't discontinued them for all digital yet.

    A Series 3 or the 2 tuner Series 4s will tune analog cable for now, as well as digital over the air broadcast (which the S2 can't do) and will be able to tune digital cable as well, if they discontine analog channels, although you'll probably need a cable card installed in the TiVo, which S3s and S4s are set up for.

    Unitron & James:

    Thanks, I needed the confirmation. Now I can feel secure to make that purchase and then when Charter pulls the plug on analog I can start squirming all over again. Hope that is more than a year or two from now. Gotta make a lifetime subscription pay.

    One way to make it pay- sell it before its too late! Seriously, with lifetime its worth something now, I would take advantage of that.
