View Full Version : Extract Shows from Tivo HD without Tivo Service

I have a Tivo HD which no longer has a Tivo subscription. It's a PROM hacked unit which did NOT have the scrambling disabled. When I still had my Tivo service I was able to extract shows using any of the PC/Mac based software and convert them to mpeg files. It appears that these programs can no longer transfer the shows off the Tivo because I don't have Tivo service.

I installed mfs_ftp and transferred a show, but that's when I realized that the TY/TY+ files were scrambled. Is there any way to hack the Tivo HD to allow the PC based software to download the shows? Are there any options other than subscribing to the Tivo service again?

Not as far as I know. If the shows are scrambled, having service for TiVoToGo is your only option.
