Back when I had a series 1, I tried our digital package. I wasn't all that impressed with the extra offerings, and using the cable box with my TiVo was a real pain, trying to get TiVo to change the channels. I went back to analog. I now have a series 2, and am still using analog. When the new digital changes take place in 2009, will my series 2 be able to receive digital without a separate cable box? If not, is the setup for using a cable box any easier than it was with the series 1? Our cable company now offers a DVR that they claim is similar to TiVo, though I haven't investigated the details yet. But if making the transition proves too difficult, I might check them out more carefully. Hopefully your answers will convince me this isn't necessary. Thanks as always for your great help.
