It won't receive two digital signals. It will only "receive" a digital signal courtesy of a cable box provided by the cable company. This box will have analog audio and video outputs which actually connect to the TiVo.
The catch is that the TiVo is only capable of controlling one cable box. This means that you can connect one box and get your digital (plus analog) channels and connect the cable directly to the TiVo to get all of the analog channels.
The good news is that the February '09 cutoff only applies to over-the-air
analog broadcasts (the kind you receive with a rooftop antenna). It's likely that the cable company will continue to provide analog cable
signals for the foreseeable future, but no one really knows. Note that Comcast scrambles all cable channels, necessitating a cable box, in central Philly as it is today.
