    I was just given a Humax DRT800. I also found out that it does not have Tivo Basic service. Anyone thought about putting a Toshiba or Pioneer image on it?

    If one could get free service like that, I think it would be common knowledge around here, so I'm going to guess that it won't work.

    Does it work as a Humax?

    Which is to say, does it boot up and seem to be okay other than not having a subscription?

    It won't work. Get someone to give you a free Pioneer or Toshiba. They aren't worth anything unless they have lifetime.

    The Pioneer and Toshiba units usually sell on Ebay. Many people aren't aware of the distinction between Tivo Plus and Tivo Basic service. You're still getting the Tivo guide data without paying a subscription and that alone should be worth something.
