No you haven't, you liar. If you had, you'd have noticed the stickies that clearly state that discussing service theft is both illegal and not acceptable on this board.

What part of the prohibition on discussing service theft was confusing to you?

You haven't read dick-all about it, if you think you can come here and ask us to teach you how to steal Tivo service. Get out of here before you get us all in trouble with Tivo.

thats service theft if you want the guide. if you dont want the guide at all (just a dumb vcr), then there are methods, but only s1 units were sold with that as a standard option. the tivo service is part of having a tivo.


if so what files ard needed?

is there a detialed step by step file?

do searches on these topics. there are plenty of "guides", and the sticky threads have plenty of info.

Not with Series 2, thief. Search, this has been discussed amply.

Why? Because I chastised you after you (1) lied, (2) broke the rules of the board by (3) trrying to steal Tivo service, and (3) failed to apologize for your mistakes?

Oh no, my dear little pissant, I think I'll leave you to sodomize yourself.

Series 2 SA Tivos can't be used without subscription, as a vcr. Some earlier Series 1's can, and some later series 1's can be so-hacked. But not series 2 as far as I know.

You could have found out more about this without asking a question, which you're not supposed to do here.

Also, you might have anticipated (based on the environment you would have become familiar with, had you read much) that this is a shoot first forum and you should have been much clearer in your question not to imply (or say antyhing that might be read to imply [however incorrectly]) service theft.

You mentioned "guides." Jeeze. Two minutes of reading and you would have found out that's a red flag.

Finally, as a new person here you don't have the right to insult members who insult you.

For all these crimes against the people, you will be very lucky if they don't ban you.

If you buy it with the understanding that is supposed to work without service.
The basically means most older S1s, and Toshiba and Pioneer DVD combos.
All the rest need a paid sub to work, and subverting that paid sub is theft.

Moved to the Sewer since it contains NO useful information.

Tsk tsk tsk. Watch your mouth in our home. Consider yourself warned.

I will certainly try to be less candid, if that will win you as a friend, Mr. JJ Bliss.

[EDIT]I'm sorry that I couldn't have just kept my mouth shut... BUT I posted before I knew this was going to be another useless 'sewer' thread.



Also, you might have anticipated (based on the environment you would have become familiar with, had you read much) that this is a shoot first forum.

You continually seem to 'slight' the forum. I've noticed this since your introduction here.


and you should have been much clearer in your question not to imply (or say anything that might be read to imply [however incorrectly]) service theft.

"however incorrectly"?

Your opinion is crap. 'Incorrectly' is strictly YOUR opinion.


You mentioned "guides." Jeeze. Two minutes of reading and you would have found out that's a red flag.

...and rightly so.


Finally, as a new person here you don't have the right to insult members who insult you. For all these crimes against the people, you will be very lucky if they don't ban you.

So, you call a simple correction, that was severly needed..., and insult?

For your opinionated and 'shallow' comments... 'they' should ban you. How have you helped? You've simply (and this is definitely not the first time) used a response to an ignorant and uninformed post as a forum to promote your disagreements with the board's flavor/desires.

Notice, If necessary, I'll provide links to your original opinions and subsequent asides/slams of DDB here...

Oh, now I see that JJ has noticed also.

Also, I see that you have provided an 'unarguable' and non-commital response.




I will certainly try to be less candid, if that will win you as a friend, Mr. JJ Bliss.

'Less candid' implies that you are somehow justified in your misguided stance.

I don't think so. Candid, or less, implies that your position is accurate.

I don't agree. You have your opinion and it's not that accurate.


We don't agree.

I hadn't considered this. If I buy an old S1 (that may have originally shipped with an OS post-1.3) and use it without subscribing, as a vcr or simply as a playback machine on my home network, you think that's theft? I'm not arguing, frankly I'm reacting that you may have a valid point that I should have thought about before, and I'm going to have to start thinking about it now.

Thanks. Uh, I guess. Maybe I was happier not knowing.
