How do I set up my TiVo Premiere series DVR?
What you need to get started
The TiVo Premiere DVR replaces your cable box, but you still keep your cable service. It plugs directly into your cable service to deliver your cable TV programming.
TiVo Premiere works with a CableCARD™. Premiere requires a single CableCARD from your cable company. The CableCARD acts as a replacement for your cable box. Just insert it into the back of your TiVo Premiere DVR.
If you are using a digital antenna for your TiVo service, just plug an HD antenna into a TiVo Premiere DVR and start watching and recording your favorite shows. Learn more
