How to use Raspberry Pi with Tivo?
I am not computer literate and I'm hoping that all of you experts will be able to help me with this question. My roommate is trying to help me do something and I don't know if it's possible. He bought a Raspberry Pi and he is hooking it to my home network so we can watch things on YouTube and surf the internet without pop-ups and commercials. But then I asked him a seemingly impossible request...
"Can we connect the Raspberry Pi to my home network in such a way that, when I record shows on my Tivo Roamio Plus, that the recordings will skip over all of the commercials entirely?"
My roommate said this was not possible because my Tivo is connected directly to my Spectrum Cable line. Sure, when I watch a recording I can press a Skip button on my remote control to skip over the commercials but I'm wondering if there is a way to record my shows where the commercials do not get recorded at all.
I figure that the Raspberry Pi is a wonder device and all of you computer experts would surely have a solution.
Is this a conundrum or is this impossible? I mean, man did fly to the moon. Thank you.
