So comcast is telling me I have to use their receiver that they will rent to me. The only alternative is to use a Tivo, which they will then rent me a cable card for only like $1.50 per month. Is there some other receiver I can get that will use the cable card and work correctly? I actually have directv and have no intention of leaving them. But I want to get the pac 12 network. Since directv doesn't offer it, I'm thinking a TV and Internet bundle from comcast is in order. I just want the cheapest package on 1 TV. I'll use a slingbox to get it to the other TVs as needed. I only plan on watching this one channel, and only a few times per month. I'll cancel the TV portion after football season, so no term commit. (my main TV watching will be on my existing directv service) What's the cheapest way to do this? Oh yeah, it needs to be HD. Surely there must be some device I can tell them is a Tivo, put a cable card in it, and use it without paying Tivo a monthly fee?
