Tivo To Go!
Well since i did not get that hackable Tivo off of ebay, was out bidded! I may have to get a new Tivo standalone.
I see that Tivo has a package called Tivo To Go. Since i just want to be able to get my shows off to archive them for later viewing would this work?
You probably want to check with TiVoCommunity about Tivo-to-Go. I haven't messed with it (still on v4.0.1b myself) but I hear its a pain. You need a special access key number for your specific shows, and only supposedly only certain PC softwares can burn usable DVD-Rs from the resulting files.
Me, I locked my TCD240's at v4.0.1b, hacked, with MFS-FTP to download (and upload) shows. If you buy new, be aware that the TCD540's require a tricky and probably expensive hardware PROM replacement to get into a 'hackable' state.
I can't believe there is only one TCD240 available on eBay. My last three TiVo's were eBay finds.
Duh, of course with a name like 'MrSat' perhaps you are instead referring to DirectTivo unit instead. It's unclear what you want.
The MrSat was a nick from the past. I was talking about a standalone tivo as i stated in my previous post. Thanks for replying.
In short, yes it can be done...w/out needing MySonic, etc. You might want to search for DirectShowDump, ETivo on this site. Or check this thread http://www.dealdatabase.com/forum/sh...hlight=tivo2go
