    I have Comcast now and thinking about switching to either Dish Network or Direct TV. Here the problem, I have 2 Toshiba RX-20 Tivo's that I bought last year. My question is will Tivo work with satellite? I wan't to keep my boxes since they cost almost $900 dollars and I only had them for 6 months.

    Yep they will work fine. They will either control your satellite box via a serial cable or an IR signal depending on the receiver you get. If possible it would be a good idea to look around here for what satellite boxes can be controlled via serial cable, and then request one of those, since serial control is more reliable than IR.
