Has anyone figured out a way to prevent updates while still receiving guide data from TiVo? Right now I'm recieving guide data and updates through TivoNet, but I'm not sure of the best way to prevent the updates...

Depending on your lan setup, you could block the ip that the tivo is trying to connect to when it is updating. im not sure if it is different than the one for guide data.

if its the same, then you could manually allow it to connect out to get guide data, but when it wants to connect out for upgrade, it would be blocked.

just a thought. im not well versed on the dynamics of what happens during the daily call.

on that note, has anyone thought of attempting to recreate the man-in-the-middle data logger that one of those consumer magazines used during their tivo privacy review? i think that sort of setup would be quite useful.
