#1 - What else do I need to buy in order to hook the Tivo to my home LAN? How difficult is it to go wireless with that? (Router is nowhere near my TV)

I believe has to set up with a wired ethernet or a phone connection first..

#2 - Will the DVD Recorder allow me to place recorded Tivo content onto disc?
A external, yes. A combo-DVD can only recod content to disc it recorded on it (content transferred via HMO will not).

#3 - Will I be able to record on one channel whilst watching something else?
With two Tivos (as it appears you are looking at), yes.

#5 - Kind of a non-Tivo question. I've seen ads touting the use of a DVDRW in place of a Tivo (although its like 6 hours max time) and that the disc can be overwritten almost endlessly. Is there any truth to this?
I'd give it a few thousand cycles. And less the nifty guide related features.

Tivo is Sony SVR2000, 80 GB HDD.
Why do you keep rewinding that? Because with TiVo, I can.
