I have Charter digital cable in Birmingham, Alabama - to get the "digital" channels, I have to use their set top converter box. (TV's without the box don't get all of the channels) The Series 2 Tivo says that you can record 2 digital cable channels at once - but it doesn't say anything about using the cable company's set top box. Does this mean that the Tivo is able to handle incoming digital cable without the converter box? (cable straight from wall to tivo) ---- or does it mean that I would have to run cable from wall to Charter box then A/V out or something to Tivo with Tivo controlling the set top box for channel selection, etc.... I *HOPE* that the Tivo will do all of this without having to use the settop box.... and I don't want to sink the money into a new Tivo if I still have to use the Charter box with it. I asked the person at Tivo on the phone, and her answer was about as clear as mud - can someone here verify one way or the other for me?
