Check with TiVo but the services offered in your current service should be the same as what TiVo offers.  There may be some advantage to both but I can't see a reason you would need it.

Let us know the essential features/services of your current set up if you want to make sure TiVo will be able to support them too.  If you are changing "cable" providers then you may not even have the option to use the old DVR company, TiVo may be the way they provide that service.

Let me know if you have a question or need more info.

If you return your cable company DVR, you should save the monthly DVR fee. If you get Tivo, you will then pay them the monthly fee (about $13). If you get the Series 2 Tivo, you will still need the cable box if you want premium channels. If you get the HD Tivo, you won't need the cable box anymore but will need a cable card or two (1st is free but the 2nd is about $2/month - if possible, get an M-Card which will do the same as 2 S-Cards, saving the 2nd card fee).

Tivo is much better than the cable company DVRs and has a wonderful user interface.

Lots of info at the forum: http://www.tivocommunity.com
