1. Asking your tivo which parition it boots from with bootpage
2. Mounting a couple of partitions with mount
3. Moving a couple of files around with cp and dd
4. Applying a couple of patches with killhdinitrd, Superpatch-4all, etc
That's almost funny.
Here I was thinking that I needed to quit playing with all this tivo stuff and finish getting my AV home theater built (I don't even have surround even with 2 wide-screens) and that I was behind the video times...
1. Take one of those 250gb's out of the array
2. Tell the family to standby for a weekend and that they'll like the result
3. Apply the tivo OS you backed up during hinsdale using mfsrestore
4. Hack your tivo - everythings here
5. Next week buy a second one and do it again (you don't even have to subscribe if you just want to watch things you've HMO'd to it)
and using this you can burn anything you want, and take it where ever you want, and watch it on whatever you want to watch it on, as many times as you want to watch it...
It's a BEAUTIFUL thing. Good luck.
