Hello, I have a number of TV shows that were saved to my computer as .tivo files using Tivo Desktop Plus or kmttg. I would like to insert them for watching on a Series 2 model 540040 that no longer has an active subscription. This Tivo box will no longer connect to my network so I can't pull or push them from the computer. I've read a lot of posts about hacking the Tivo to allow the insertion, but these posts all have broken links where they point to the tools and further information needed. Is this kind of hack doable in the current world? If so, could someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction? I'm not a computer expert, but I believe that I have the technical background to do this, as I am old enough to have worked at the command line interface for unix, dos, and even vax/vms, and have done many types of pc hardware upgrades over the years. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Also I forgot to mention, this is a standalone Tivo brand box, model TCD540040.
