Hi, We're trying to find out if a tivo will work for what I'm trying to do. Can a series 2 be used to capture live video from a video camera and then pause / review / etc without paying for the subscription? This wouldn't be used for broadcasted video at all and would have no internet / phone connection ever. I see documentation on tivo's site and other saying this is possible but when I tried to do it I couldn't get it to work. This was on a series 2 tivo that didn't have an active subscription. the model number is tcd24004a. I'm after exactly what this guy is after. to be used as a coaching tool to play what the video camera sees at a 30 second delay. sorry, had to break up the url due to this being my first post. tivo-vb/archive/index.php/t-255960.html Tivo support directed me here saying it's possible.
