Can I muse my Old D* R10 to Record OFF-AIR?

1016 Views 4 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  armin_t
Since I have upgraded to HDTV service and of course my HDTV set... I was of course convinced to go and get an Antenna. Well now I have a perfectly descent Tivo R10 just sitting around and I was wondering if I could hook that into the antenna and record programs from the off air feed.

I read on Cnet that the off air hookup for the r10 is non-recordable. however, I have a feeling some ingenious chap has some sort of a work around.

Oh and yes, I am aware that it would be recording SD and not HD.

Any help is definitely appreciated.

Sorry, not possible, the R10 and all other Directivos do not have MPEG encoders.
What if I use the Analog chanels instead of the digital?
Like I said, it lacks an MPEG encoder which is needed to record analog. Digital's out of the question too because it doesn't have a digital (ATSC) tuner. You're just plain out of luck.
Well at least I can watch the shows right?
