Of course that all depends on your provider and what they throw out there "in the clear". Easiest thing to do would be to hook your cable straight to your HDTV, if it has a QAM tuner, and do a channel scan and see what comes up.
With this setup you get a whole home DVR without the added costs and limitations of your provider's equipment (TW, Comcast, Dish, DirecTV, etc.).
It's at least worth looking into.
