I'm sure this has been answered before (I seem to vaguely recall the thread), but can't find it with any searching...
I have Verizon FIOS, with a SD set top box, running into my old Series 2 (single tuner) and then to a SD television. I am looking to upgrade to TivoHD and a HDTV over the next couple months, with the TivoHD now (to take advantage of the lifetime service offer that ends 4/1).
I realize that TivoHD is primarily designed to work with CableCards and no set top box, but can I use it with a STB and no CC's until I can complete the upgrade process? I realize I wouldn't get the dual-tuner functionality or the HD functionality until I have CCs and an HDTV, but would this set up work (presumably like the Series2 I have now)?
FIOS -> SD STB -> Series2 -> SD TV
FIOS -> SD STB -> TivoHD -> SD TV
Until I can upgrade completely to:
FIOS -> CCs -> TivoHD -> HDTV
