I have recently been given an unwanted 1tb series 4 premičre. This is a uk smt-c7101 Samsung. It seems to be locked to the virginmedia network.
I would like to reload it with a clean firmware to use as a dvr with my satellite. Is this possible ?
I have in the past upgraded games consoles with Linux images so am not adverse to opening boxes and getting my hands dirty.
The TiVo looks as though it has great potential, it would be shame to scrap it.
Any help / advice. Much appreciated
Was that thing even purchased, and not just rented from Virgin?
Are you (and it) in the US or the UK?
