    I am considering doing the same thing but have not decided what exactly to do. If you have an xbox or Wii, you can try Play on. It allows you to stream tv through your networked PC to the Xbox or Wii. I did the 2 week trial and it is decent. Lots of kids shows out there. You can pause or fast forward very well but does give you options for programs. Of course, it is not compatible with the Tivo.

    I am actually thinking of getting a Premiere today today to replace the cable dvr. Would like to drop cable to lower some bills ...

    Ok, called Uverse and they said I could cancel just my home phone and TV and keep the internet for 25 a month. I pay now 124 for TV(3boxes)+Internet+Phone. Now, you add up the
    Tivo(20 a month)+
    Netflix(10.00)+
    Internet(25.00)
    =55.00
    Sounds good but....what I dont get is 3 rooms with TV...sports (Hockey)...kids out of my hair....
    So option B is Keep Uverse but get rid of 2 of the 3 boxes...keep Tivo for Downstairs...Uverse upstairs...keep netflix and Internet...get rid of home phone.
    Grand total of 112.00 a month for that setup vs old setup of 124.00. Yep...Im going to lose my mind...Once you look at the overall savings...all this is for not unless you kill everything to the bare min....kill me.

    We don't have the multiple TV problem.....yet; I don't know what we'll so when that happens either.

    The main thing stopping me from dumping cable are college football games. It seems like the games we want to watch are usually on an off-ESPN channel, like ESPN2 or ESPU. If we stop getting those channels, my family says they'll just go down the road to the local sports bar/eatery to watch the game, where they'll end up spending more money than what we saved on the monthly cable bill.
