I just bought a Series 2 for the sole purpose of transferring Tivo recordings to my video iPod. (The rest of my units are DirecTivos.)
This may be a dumb question, and my apologies if it has been asked and answered before:
Can I transfer recordings directly to my laptop without creating a home network -- preferably with a straightforward USB connection? I have no need for a home network, and I would like to avoid the hassle of setting one up unless it's absolutely necessary.
