#1 - You need to buy an USB adapter supported by TiVo. A List is provided on This TiVo page.

#2 - Sure. Its just A/V out from the TiVo, should work fine.

#3 - Not normally. The TiVos you are looking at only have one tuner (only the DirecTV DVRs with TiVo have two tuners), and so can only handle one channel at a time. If the TiVo is recording you can watch either that show or a previously recorded show with your TiVo.

However you should be able to split the input coax before your cable box and use your TVs tuner to watch analog channels while the TiVo is recording. (Or buy a second cable box for live viewing and dedicate your current cable box for the TiVo)

edit: stevel beat me to it.
