DEFINITELY go ahead and start using your new ReplayTV!
You have your choice - you can tell it you just have cable for now, and just get those listings - OR, you could go ahead and tell it you have DirecTV too (even though you don't yet) and have those channels already in your channel guide, ready and waiting for you to actually HAVE the DirectTV hookup (your DirecTV channels will (most likely) be the ones above 100.
You will probably
be hooking up your DirecTV to input 2, using svideo. Feel free to tell it that during setup. Do you know what brand of DirectTV receiver (RCA, Sony ...) you'll have? I'll take a wild guess and say you'll probably have serial control (questions asked during setup).
Feel perfectly free to set up with just
your cable channels now, as it is easy to go back later and tell it you have DirectTV once you do - but you will face a longer download after you tell it about the DirecTV.
Good luck. Post your decision, your results, and, go ahead, share your enthusiasm - we understand ... http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
