UK TiVo French Satellitte?

So The tivo got relegated upstairs after getting a Sky HD Box :-(

But I've recently got a B&Q cheap satellite dish to get French telly for the wife(shes french) and figured I could use tivo to manual record from it.

It sort of works but I get an error message saying no call data. Now I coud rig up the phone line, but that might be even more missing leading as it'll have the wrong progam names. Is there a way of telling tivo to just be a dumb hard disk recorder, and only work on manual record without erroring on call data ?

Even better whats the chnaces of getting French channel info in to it?

And as an aside, wheres the rest of the forum gone, has everyone given up on Tivo ? Oh Fickleness, thy name is Gadget geek.

The absolute simplest way is to just record the sat box channel over RF/Scart manually although you'll also have to program the channel changes into the sat box also - unless it's just the 1 channel. I did this for many a year for Japanese TV for the wife. Next step up would be to get the remote codes into Tivo so it can control the box. Channel data, I would think, is not going to happen.
