You can't use the exact same program guide as the cable company's set-top, but 
there is usually some kind of EPG in the TV.  Toshiba, for example, uses TV 
Guide software which is actually far superior to what I'm used to with SA.

Sticking with what I know, Toshiba again offers a simple PVR upgrade for their 
integrated sets.  It's a hard drive that plugs into the TV's Firewire I/O.

2 strikes...wanna swing again?
