    Heres the deal....

    I have Direct TV w/ Tivo now. I own the unit. Im changing to Comcast. I have them installing a DVR in one of my rooms but I dont want this Direct TV Tivo to go to waste. Can I use it as a straight up TIVO?

    Short answer: no.

    Search is your friend:
    Anyone know if it's possible to use a Directv DVR without Directv?
    DirecTV R10 with Comcast Cable - No Satellite
    Use DirecTV TiVo/receiver with non-DirecTV service?

    Or about any of another 100 threads I found by searching for "cable directv tivo" in about 5 seconds.

    In a box.
    Looking at the box will answer the question.

    "DirecTV receiver" is a giveaway.
