    When I set up my second Tivo (TivoHD) I ran setup, and told it No OTA. I then had a three day ordeal getting my cablecard authorized to work on it with Comcast (M-Card).

    I now want to save $8/mo and return the Comcast cable box, since they are planning on adding On Demand to the Premier. I want to move the TivoHD to the bedroom where the cable box is.

    Can I rerun guided setup on that unit to tell it I now want to add OTA without screwing up the cablecard settings?

    Yes, Guided Setup won't mess with your CableCARD pairing (a Clear & Delete Everything would, though).

    Remember it could a year or more before Tivo can do Comcast vod.

    Yea, but they are raising my rates from $7.95 per outlet to $8.50 per outlet, raising the cablemodem from $5 to $7, and a couple other minor rate increases. I need to cut down on the extra's for now, so I am going to buy my own cable modem (will pay for itself in 11 months), and return their HD cable box (save me another $8.50 per month).

    I am locked in on package price for two years, so they cant raise that at least. Ill just have to do without VOD. I have Hulu, and Playon, and Netflix, and enough other choices for now.

    Thanks for the info though.
