You might want to ask in the DirecTiVo forum

http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...splay.php?f=36

where it might catch more sat TiVo users eyes.

And a more specific and descriptive title wouldn't hurt.

Hook it up to your TV and power it up. Connect it to your satellite dish and pop in an access card if you have one handy. You won't be able to watch live TV or do any recording but you should be able to click through the menus and possibly watch one of the barker channels.
