    I have come across a thread that suggested there is a way to use a Series 1 Tivo with cable but without a cable box (basic cable). I've been searching for the hack but have not found it in the forum or searching through Google. Any ideas where I can find this info?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just choose "cable no box" in guided setup. If the unit isn't subbed you may not be able to setup channels, not sure though.

    You can do guided setup without a sub.

    There is no hack to make it get digital cable on its own.

    I have this exact setup. I get about 15 channels now that Comcast has gone digital in Chicago. I didn't have to do anything special, just the guided setup as stated above.
