    Hey guys I was wondering what the limitations of the premier were if I use it in conjuction with my cableCARD but do not subscribe to tivo's service. I'm basically looking for a cheap way to have a cablebox that has a low monthly fee. I currently have a second TV that has just analog cable hooked up, and it would be great to be able to get all of the HD chans, and I was wondering if the tivo would do this without a subscription? Thanks

    Yes you can do this but you will not have any guide data for the stations, and you will get a nag screen now and then.
