Has anyone tried to set up a Tivo or DVR box? I wasn't sure if it would work since we don't have a cable box (only a cable coming out of the wall).

Has anyone tried?

So you don't have a cable box? You just run the wire to the DVR?

Re: your statement about the connection -- do DVR's require an internet connection?

Yep...just hook the coax to the DVR if it allows coax connections. I have a little USB connector that goes to coax and my laptop is the dvr...

Some DVRs want internet so that they can pull up channel programing like an interactive TV Guide kind of thing.

for those on TIVO and cable where does it get the tv channel lineup? does it have the proper information and tv guide? Just wondering as my TIVO is hooked up through SAT.

I remember a post in the past where you can make a custom TV listing... I could be wrong but with the way we get channels from multiple time zones across the U.S. I doubt a channel guide would work without some sort of modification. Anyone know?
