Unfortunately, without the ability to ditch the On Demand cable box (which is very slow and unresponsive at times), I'm not sure if the Tivo makes sense, even with the ability to watch Netflix...
I don't know how it is with IO cable, but many systems will give you one 'free' box with a cablecard rental just so they can get the revenue for PPV. Not a DVR mind you, but that slow, cheap box you complained about.
So you could have the best of both worlds. It's worth at least a phone call.
