Does TiVo provide "boxless" guide data?

I am thinking about purchasing TiVo again, having had it in the past. Previously I paid for the full digital cable from TWC and was using a CableCARD in the TiVo.

This worked great as the TiVo guide data uses the standard TWC channel numbers. Now, however, I no longer pay for the full digital package and don't rent a box or cards from TWC. My apartment just provides the basic cable channels on the coax and if you want all the digital channels you can pay more.

Since I'm just using the straight coax into my TV right now I have to use the "boxless" channel numbers (such as 34.20, 34.21, 47.26, etc.).

Does anybody know if TiVo now provides guide data for the boxless channels? If it can only try to tune to the "standard" channel numbers then it won't work for me at all. I need it to be able to show the guide and do recordings based on the boxless numbers, not the the numbers that the channels would be on if I had the CableCARD installed.
