It may have been asked before, but I doubt it has been accomplished. In theory, it is relatively simple - patch the code to direct the output to a firewire or gigabyte ethernet port and stream it to your computer. Whoops!!! There's the first problem - no firewire or ethernet port on the Series 2 TiVos. Still, a USB 2.0 port does have sufficient bandwidth, so that's not a major obstacle. The next problem I see is buffering the stream to accommodate delays at the computer side. What happens if the computer is off, temporarily busy, the hard drive is badly fragmented, or the network is busy?
