    Would like to know if there would be any functionality to the HD units if they were used without the monthly subscription fees? Would basically like to use the unit as stb & be able to record local telecasts.

    No Tivo functionality, including OTA. It does have other uses but that's for others to describe. :)

    I believe that you can run the demo video which will highlight all the things that you are missing. :)

    What about Tivo's SPS codes? Can we turn on the clock display and caller ID?
