Hi, My wife and I are seriously considering TIVO, but have a potential problem. We have DirectTV for most programming, but basic cable for our locals (since not the locals we want are on DirecTV). 1. I believe that if you buy the TIVO with the directv receiver, you can only record shows from the dish. Is this correct? 2. If I buy a standard TIVO, can I record shows from directv?? if so, how? and will I be able to use the programming guide. probably not. I guess what I really want is a Tivo that has both a cable receiver and a directv receiver in the same unit. I don't think I'll hold my breath. My only solution may be to purchase a TIVO with the DirecTV receiver and then add the local channels to my service, that my be the quick fix. BUT NOT UPN. DARN !! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
