Greetigs Y'all,
I've been looking for a replacement to my Philips DVR. Came across a TiVo Premiere unit at Costco. It requires a subscription. Can it be 'modded' for use as a basic HD-DVR? I don't need any fancy TiVo functionality.

Mods: If this post is not appropriate, please go ahead and remove. Thanks

No. There's currently no public way to hack the TiVo Premier. Even if there was, this site does not condone manually activating features on the TiVo without paying the subscription fee.

Without a subscription, you can only pause, rewind, ff Live TV. You won't get any programming info and you can't record anything.
