    I want to replace my VCR. Is the monthly subscription necessary to be able to record in HD?

    Yes. A subscription is required for any kind of recording capability.

    Not necessarily. Lifetime is a one time purchase.

    No one mentioned lifetime. Just for a subscription is necessary for operation whether its monthly, yearly or lifetime.

    Would it be possible to get custom software so that I can record without the subscription? I need to record only occasionally.

    If you are going to have non-tivo software, why buy a tivo box?

    The OP didn't just ask about a subscription, they specifically stated monthly subscription, so that's why arw03 added the info about lifetime as another subscription option that the OP may not have known about,
