So, two questions. First, is anyone aware of any cable or sat boxes that have serial inputs which can be used to connect a Tivo?
I know Directv has Boxes that support the IR Blaster, Serial Connector and Low Speed Data Connector, but am unsure about Dish. Check out the thread Ruth gave you.

Second, does any service provider (Sat or Cable) currently offer a set top box with Tivo built in? My understanding is that DirectTV went to their own DVR, and that it sucks. Any way to have just the single box supplying the content and serving as the Tivo?
There has only ever been One Provider that did this: Directv/Tivo units. They are no longer made, but you can still find New Ones around. You can also get Used Units that work just as well. They were and still are the "Best of the Best" for both Directv and Tivo. Again, they will only work with Directv Service.

Comcast/Tivo are supposed to be working on a New Unit to, but it will only work with Comcast Cable. It has not appeared out yet.
