I have a dual-tuner TiVo box, and since I didn't need a cable box with RCN's basic cable, I had all the channels I wanted, and could record two shows at a time.

Starting on Dec. 15, we have to use a digital converter box to get RCN channels. I tried the setup for the first time yesterday, and failed because I hadn't done the extra wiring necessary. (I just used one extra cable to do wall-to-cable-box-to-TiVo instead of wall-to-TiVo.)

Looking at various diagrams and the forums on the TiVo site, it looks like I won't be able to use the second tuner after the 15th, because one TiVo can't control two converter boxes.

Am I right? What's everyone else doing? I can probably manage without a second tuner, but this is kind of irritating.
