    I wasn't expecting to see the new face of DDB when I logged on after a hiatus. All I can say is that it's different, but not necessarily in a bad way. I've been so used to seeing the old-style...

    External slim drives like this are perfect for netbooks and laptops that do not come with DVD-ROM drives. I'm not sure how you can make a ridiculous blanket statement that a DVD-ROM is not a good...

    Put it somewhere else. The /var directory gets wiped all the time and is a known issue dating back to the original S1 Tivos.

    What's to purchase? If you've already got a Windows 7 PC all you need is a tuner card and an antenna to record OTA channels. If you want cable channels then you'll have to get on a waiting list for...

    Frankly, I have gotten tired of Tivo's business model, which is why I now use a Win 7 Media Center HTPC with a Ceton InfiniTV 4 cablecard tuner and four ATSC tuners. I pay for only one cablecard...

    Now that Tivo recordings can be extracted via either Tivo Desktop or kttmg, there's no need to hack the PROM and disable encryption. Granted, transferring recorded shows from a hacked Tivo using...

    You're basically SOL. The Tivo functions won't work without the Tivo service. If you're in a country that isn't supported by Tivo then you can't get service. I don't recall what kind of broadcast...

    This may seem like a dumb question but is there a chance you accidentally reprogrammed the remote with a different IR codeset than the Tivo? Try these options and see if it works.

    If your remote...

    The best part about your experience is that you've learned what not to do the next time. I learned more about hacking my Tivos by making mistakes than having things go smoothly.

    +1 on the HTPC. I've got one with four ATSC tuners and Windows 7 Media Center. Media Center has built-in DVR software so all you need is the tuners and an antenna connection and you're good to go. ...

    You could try looking in a forum that discusses such issues. We don't deal with DirecTV receivers here, just Tivos with DirecTV. We just discuss the Tivo side of the box and not the receiver side. ...

    Check the OS version to see what is installed on the Tivo. I believe you'd need version 1.3 or older in order to do what you want. Anything newer will require a Tivo subscription to record anything.

    I suspect that activity here will pick up again if and when DirecTV introduces their new DirecTivo. The current standalone models already incorporate most of the hacks we installed in the DirecTivo...

    Not going to happen without replacing the mainboard and tuners. In other words, a completely new DVR.

    It's actually an original Series 3 Tivo and not the Tivo HD. It's a refurb in case anyone's interested. I believe it comes with all of the original accessories and cables.

    Check the ribbon cable between the power supply and the mainboard. You'll have to pull the drive rack out to access it. The cable contacts tend to tarnish over time and cause reboot problems. The...

    Discussion of bypassing a paid subscription on any Tivo has always been a verboten topic here so I'd have to say it still wouldn't be allowed for legal reasons. However, that doesn't preclude...

    This begs the question, why are you installing an outdated version of the DirecTivo OS? You need at least version 3.1 to work with any of the current access cards, IIRC.

    I believe 1TB is the maximum for a single drive based on currently available drive sizes, but you could install two 1TB drives in your S2 DTivo with an expansion bracket from Weaknees or 9th Tee.
