1. Setup TiVo
2. Sub for monthly fee of $10, opt out of viewing habit survey.
3. Remove phone plug
4. After one month cancel sub

You will now be able to at least use the record button and the manual record function; no other TiVo functions will be available to you: e.g. program guide.

WAIT! I just noticed something; you say you have a 112, is that a Philips 112 unit. I'm confused because you posted in the combo unit forum. You CANNOT with safety hack a combo unit unless you ALWAYS keep the phone line unplugged.
