I wanted a to get TiVo a few months back but the box and the salesperson says I needed phone line to set up the service and the box, from there it could run of my broadband internet. Recently I was on the website and it was a little confusing but I think I understood it as you can now do setup and everything with broadband, no cable since they updated the software. Am I understanding this correctly?

The reason I ask is I dont have a land line phone. Just me and my fiance's cell phones. But I do have broadband of course. Also, does the TiVo unit work directly off the coax cable or do you have to run an ethernet from your router?

If you have experience with this id appreciate it, thanks :)
