    I know it's a stupid question but I have a Directv with Tivo receiver from about 2 years ago. I now have Comcast, unfortunately, but hate their DVR. Is there anyway to use my Tivo box with Comcast?

    Go ahead. Try it. Post here your failure/success. :)

    It's amazing that noone has ever tried this or asked this question before. (tongue in cheek)

    Hey, don't put me in that generalized group. :D

    However, a search may have found the answer to your initial question.

    C'mon, try hooking that DTivo up to your Comcast. I betcha you'll be surprised :)

    And congrats on writing down that ID & Pwd so you could actually reply back.

    btw: I agree the question was stupid.

    I apologise for my replies but you have to understand that several times a week the same question is asked by new members and you never see them again. There are probably 200 threads on the same thing. I know the search sucks and mostly does not give answers. Like I said welcome to the forum. Unless your second post was all you post. Than See ya!
