Like the rest - I am currently emulating, er testing with DTV, but would really like to avoid the guide subscription for Tivo. Yes, I want the forbidden fruit of Tivo - Free guide service. Anyone interested in helping in that endavor?

I understand your situation, with.. err.. the testing. The guide data, though, isn't the issue. This comes down automatically from the satellite, unlink the standalones where it is downloaded. The issue to be addressed is the flag in the DirecTiVo that states this system is currently activated. I believe there were posts elsewhere on what flag to set.

I am trying to pick up another Philips DirecTiVo for hacking to test this out.

I've been unable to find the dir you are refering to above. Would anybody care to point me in the right direction? Where is /Setup tyDir ??:confused:
