Hello, I have a series 2 TiVo right now and I love it, I upgraded to a 380 hour TiVo and enjoy all the aspects of a TiVo. I have been looking into an HDTV and a new TiVo but I had a few questions. Will TiVo work with out the cable cards and just basic expanded cable? I have a friend that uses this on his TV and gets allot of extra channels through a QAM? tuner. Will TiVoHD work fine on a non-HDTV for now? I know that sounds crazy to upgrade, but I have to do things one step at a time. What about using the old "Save to VCR" option on the TiVoHD? Is that still an option? I mean it would take less time to do that than to transfer it over a network for some HD content? It would be easy to plug in a computer and have the S-video cable through a capture device then encode it. I use my camcorder as a pass through, but would this work for an option if you "Had to" transfer something?
