I'm not sure if the tivo would work with a cable card without a subscription. If it would then that should do what you want - probably all manually though, you know no set recording times. I thought since you wrote "Here is my setup in my living room. Cable TV coming in connected directly to my 6 YO Sammy DLP" that your cable wasn't scrambled like most. Here with comcast, there are very few channels that you can receive that way, most need their box.
