Greetings. I have a couple of questions, and I was hoping you more experienced TiVo types could help me out.

1. Do I need to keep my Comcast Cable box powered on in order for a Season pass recording? I don't think so, but how does it access the channel if my cable box power is off?

2. What happens if I am watching Live TV and it is time for a timed TiVo recording on another channel? Will I be asked to change channels? Will it override my live TV without asking? or offer an option?

3. What happens if I begin recording a show, and I turn my cable box power off during a recording?



P.S. I am amazed at how easy it was to connect to my wireless network and to play music from my computer through my TiVo/Stereo. Very cool feature!!

1) Yes, your cable box needs to remain on in order to record any scheduled recording, not jus SPs. It can't.
2) Your TiVo will ask if you want it to change channels for the recording or if you want to continue watching what you are currently watching and cancel the scheduled recording. If you do not respond, it will assume you are not actually watching TV and change channels for the scheduled recording.
3) The recording will end abruptly at the point where you turned off the cable box.
