i have made a copy of the data stream and i saved it to a file it's about 30 min long, is there a way to make my tivo load the file insted of the real stream? mabe when i first start up my tivo i can make it use the file first? i have read that you can record something at a latter time and pull out the card and it will still record it. pls pls post any info

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish, but the method you are describing isn't very plausible. The unit will not function without an access card. Whatever you heard was wrong.

You would either need to duplicate the way a LNB sends that information, and run it into the sat feed, or disassemble the majority of the system and convince it to read from a file.

Either one is not an easy task, and I'm not sure what you think it will accomplish, but I can almost guarantee it will not have whatever result you are looking for.

We would be able to help you better if you told us what you were trying to accomplish. As for diagrams and lists of stuff, I can only tell you there is a wealth of information here on the forums. I would highly suggest reading everything you can and familiarizing yourself with the way the unit works. A large majority of anything you could ever want to know has been posted, mentioned, discussed to death here and on other forums regarding the TiVo.
