Anyone know is it possible to watch the recording if I take my machine to my friend's house and he doesn't have DTV setup?

:confused:

Yes, but you'll most probably be plagued by the "Please Insert Your Access Card" nag

Or, if you do insert your card, you'll have to face the dreaded "Searching for Satellite Signal on Tuner XX"


But, yes, you can watch the pre-recorded show

Man, that really sucks. Do we currently have a hack to avoid that?

You should only see the searching for sat signal message if you have the DTivo tuned to a channel. If you're watching a prerecorded show it shouldn't be displayed. It'll only show up when you attempt to display live TV.
