ok well i dont want to steal tivo service, but i have a tivo box that i got from a friend. I dont want to pay 10-15 a month for a DVR service, lol, but i was wondering if i took out the drive, and if there was an OS or somethign i could install that would work with the rest of the TIVO box. SO basically, i install the drive on my computer, then plug it back into the tivo, and wallah i have OS that uses the TIVO's input output's, w/ IR controller, my USB WIFI device, and downloads gudies! So basically not actually the tivo program, but a knockoff you could say. Or if you hack tivo and build like an Activation server off a linux distro??? anyways is this possible?
