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?

There is nothing you can do to the hard drive that will give you free DVR service of any kind.

There are plenty of hacks to enable / add features to the Tivo software (such as caller id on the screen), but none that give you free service.
