We have a Hughes Series 1 DirecTV unit with Tivo. We have a lifetime subscription. We are looking at possibly reducing our spending, and might like to cancel DirecTV, but keep the TIVO to record and keep and view our local channels. Can this be done, and does anyone know what the savings would be going from DirecTV (basic+local) to just the TIVO subscription? Our unit is at least 3 years old, and we like the service, but we are considering making a change to save money every month. I don't think we can give up TIVO, but we could probably survive w/o directv. Thanks.
