Tivo2 as an Analog to Digital Converter Only - ala carte
First post and everything, and yes I am also doing much reading of Stickies and Google searches, etc.
I think I may have a very specific request, so here goes. (Chancing ridicule and scorn...)
Its my understanding that there are basically two components to a Tivo; the Hardware and the Tivo Subscription.
I have absolutely no interest in the features the Tivo Subscription, as I understand them, provides.
What I am looking to do is attach a device sending Analog signal to the Tivo box, record to the internal Hard Drive, and ultimately extract those digitized files out of the Tivo to a PC/Ext HD, etc.
Toward this end I am willing to nuke the existing OS/Firmware in the box, and if probable use some alternative OS, etc to record and import/export files.
What say you, oh experienced people?
