I recently upgraded my Philips Series 1 TiVo with a Networking Card, It works well to make the daily call via my internet connection. (I know there are users laughing, but Hey it WORKS and I have a life-time subscription to TIVO programming data.) Additionally, A few years ago I upgraded my harddrive.as my original harddrive decided to stop spinning. (They dont work well when they stop spinning!)
Now that I have installed my networking card, like everyone else I WANT MORE..
Actually, I would really like to us TiVo Desktop, or similar software to be able to watch Tivo recordings on my PC, and create DVD's etc. (It would also be REALLY cool) to use Tivo to directly record Vongo Movies (but not necessary.)
I have found some very OLD hacks cirrica 2001 to enable some of these features, and plenty of software to update/enhance this software. My question is any suggestions for a "clean" install to enable TiVo Desktop (or similiar?) There is a very good article that details how to update the drive by mounting the Tivo drive on PC. I have also found a few threads on using the serial port and hyperterminal on my PC, (but nothing that I have yet found appears too promising or recent, I am concerned about using 7 year old hacks..
My TiVo software version is 3.0-01-1-000, backdoors is enabled, Debug Old SS: 5, Debug: SS err 0x1F0008 is showing on the System information screen. (all appears to be working normally) Recording capacity is 53 hrs (best), 193 hrs (basic)
Any all help would be greatly appreciated.
