Before someone pipes in with "get Directivo", it's not an option.

I'm in Massachusetts. I have a series 2 "AT&T" 40 hour Tivo. Does anyone up here have a serial port enabled digital box? Are they still disabled? I'm itching for more channels beyond the expanded basic but if it's a clunky setup (tents), my wife will pack her bags after my venture to Directv fiasco. I've seen links to nice looking ir blasters online that stick right to the box. I'm really afraid to mess with a nice seamless setup where my Tivo is my "cable box" but channels are few. I may wait for the Comcast Tivo before upgrading the cable to digital.

Also, anyone have Fios? How well does it work? Works with Tivo?

thanks,

RC

What happens with the "OnDemand" if the Tivo's hooked up? Also are all of the boxes the same model? Is the serial disable in the box or at Comcast?

Sorry for bringing up some tired questions. Answers may have changed since originally answered many months back.

Did you ask them to turn it on? I know from past experience that it's tough to even find someone who knows what the serial/data port is!

Here's another dumb question! I've seen these digital boxes on ebay, will they just work? Will Comcast allow you to use one or can they shoot it down?

thanks again,

Roger
