If so you wont be able to to connect your tivo to the cable box. You will have to get a cable card and put into your tivo.
I'm guessing by the slide remote you have a premiere.
a premiere has no way of talking too, or recording something from a cable box. only a series 1 or 2 tivo can.
You will have to call bright hosue back out, tell them you need a MultiStream Cable Card, and have them install it in your premiere. The cable box is not needed unless you want another box so you can access on demand / ppv or you want to put it in another room.
Both the HD and Premiere uses Cable cards and NOT
cable boxes. The differences are, HD is Series 3, Premier is Series 4.
A slide remote will work on a Series 3 as well as 4.
Kryan, you should be able to add a USB Hub to get additional ports. The Tivo wireless adapter must be plugged into the Tivo instead of the hub.
