It doesn't matter at all who your TV provider is; if you are using the IR blasters (as opposed to Firewire to change channels) then the setup and behavior of the HD-PVR is exactly the same regardless of the cable/satellite box.

Oh, and right now for me I wouldn't even think of getting rid of my Shaw dual tuner PVR and replace it with the HD-PVR and a regular HD cable box. I do get a few instances where the DVBLink software needs to be reset or the computer restarted becasuse something goes wrong. Two of my recordings got messed up yesterday because the IR blaster service stopped running and the HD-PVR wasn't able to change the channels on the cable box before it started to record.
