There is no life without TIVO!
Playboy said:My wife gave me Tivo for Christmas and I was hoping I could post some Tivo related questions here. Tivo seems to be pretty cool but as I’m getting more into it, I’ve stumbled across some head scratching questions. I know Quads is a big Tivo fan…any others out there?
Pope John Quads is Right. But, in advance, you need to know something about Linux admin, how to patch linux (for starters, If nothing goes wrong...), and, I have heard, the right version of the automatically downloaded tvio software (typically 2-3 revs eariler than current - 1 month or so - according to the tvio hackers I know) . Hardly a script kiddie undertaking. And dont mess with the babysitter (all parents understand this...)quads said:It's not ghetto, you need ot rewire it for dual channel inputs.
40 hours is ghetto though.
I "blessed" my Tivo with 2 500GIG HDD's and also added a network card that will write to one of my local servers (should the 1TB of storage (which is about 3 weeks of TV) fill up). I can then go from Tivo to HDD to DVD Burner and watch / play later.
There is a TON of information on the net if you search for it.
