    I currently have a Tivo Premiere connected to an SD tv with Comcast cable service. In a few weeks, I will be moving into a home that also has Comcast cable service & uses a Comcast HD DVR on the main tv. Will I be able to connect my Tivo Premiere to my SD tv in a different room? If so, will there be any features lost or will I get to use all the same things I originally could (Netflix, Pandora, etc.). Also, will Comcast need to come out to setup my Tivo with the new service, or can I just connect it myself without Comcast's help?:)

    You will not lose any services on your tivo provided you connect it to broadband. You will need to have a cable card installed if you want to access the digital channels. You can do a self install of the cable card (this is now mandated by law) and it is very easy. I would put you comcast box on the sd tv in the other room and the tivo on the main tv myself though :)
