    Mostly the spammers post here. There isn't a lot of activity given the locked-down nature of the newer boxes.

    killhdinit doesn't do anything to the PROM. As far as I know, everything from the Series 3 and newer, plus some Series 2, needs a PROM mod, and the newest models don't have available hacks.

    The only models that supported recording without a subscription were the Series 1 Philips and TiVo branded DVRs, and most, but not all, Sony SVR-2000 Series 1 models.

    No, not possible. None of the Series 2 TiVos could do this. Some Series 1 models could.
