Basically I was given a Tivo (Direct TV kind). One of the first and simplest questions: this will work with a cable signal, right? There isn't anything that says it has to be satellite for it to work with this is there?? I already use a Replay TV for most of my shows, but I was thinking it would be nice to have this Tivo to play around with (media center stuff, etc), and also record shows. My first question- without wiping the Tivo software off, is there any way to get some sort of free service (I know it is against forum rules to steal, etc. I am not looking to do that, I am looking for alternatives to the general pay-for method). If that cannot be done, is there some sort of guide to installing Linux on a Tivo (Then MythTV or something). The only thing, if it installs right, how do you make sure the remote interfaces with the unit? It is a Directv DVR R10. Thanks for any info you can give me.
