Not "through the box." You use the TiVo instead
of the box. Many cable systems that still offer an analog tier simulcast those analog signals as digital signals so their digital only DVRs or STBs will tune the signal. If any
of the boxes that they use are digital only, then they must simulcast those analog tiers in digital. The TiVo will tune to that digital simulcast of the analog tiers. That's why I asked for the model numbers of the DVRs or STBs that they use (so I know if they use any digital only boxes.)
