Does TiVo work with Comcast? Yes, but it takes some configuration.

Series 1 and Series 2
If you have a Series 1 or Series 2 Single Tuner DVR and want to continue receiving all of your channels, you’ll need to connect your TiVo DVR to a digital adapter or a Comcast digital cable box.
To continue receiving all of your channels with a Series 2 Dual Tuner DVR, you’ll need to connect your TiVo DVR to a digital adapter or a digital cable box from Comcast. However, connecting to a digital adapter will not allow you to use TiVo's dual-tuner functionality. To do that, you’ll need to use a Comcast digital cable box and a cable splitter (included in the Series 2 Dual Tuner package).
Note: Only one tuner will receive your complete channel lineup—your second tuner will receive only basic channels.
If you have a Series 3 or above HD DVR and do not already have CableCARDs installed in your TiVo DVR, you will need Comcast to provide you with either:
- Series 3 HD DVR: Two CableCARDs
- TiVo HD or TiVo HD XL: Either one M-Card or two S-Cards
- TiVo Premiere and Premiere XL DVR: One M-Card
