TiVo Roamio- Can I return my Fios cable box?

I am contemplating getting a Roamio box and Tivo service instead of getting Fios DVR service. Right now I have a Fios set top box with no DVR service. If I go with TiVo, can I return my Fios set top box back to Verizon and stop paying the Fios set top box monthly rental charge?

I am about 99.9% sure you can return the FIOS box. I probably need a cable card for the tivo in which they my be charge for that.

It's $3.99 a month for a CableCard from Fios. You can return your box. I have Fios and have CableCards and no Fios boxes.

If you don't want to do anything with On-Demand or Pay Per View stuff, you can return the FiOS box. I have two TiVos, both with M-Cards, and no FiOS set top boxes.

Recently increased to $4.99 in most markets with Verizon, I'm paying $25 in CableCARD fees since there's no "first free" like many cable companies and my S3 takes 2.
