Do you think a Hauppauge 1512 HD-PVR 2 will work with my TiVo?

In the back of my TIVO, I have inputs for component video (as well the audio) and I know the Hauppauge 1512 HD-PVR 2 comes with component cables. Do you guys think it would be a viable option to use to record what I have saved on the TIVO to my PC or am I going to run into copy-protection issues? I don't plan on using HDMI (which I know is riddled with copy-protected), just component. Should that work or do you guys think it still wouldn't let me record?

*Note- programs like kmttg do not work for me because almost EVERYTHING besides local networks are copy-protected. So, I am hoping this is a good workaround.

Any help would be appreciated.

I don't think your TiVo Premiere has component inputs. It sounds like you are using the component outputs.

If the component outputs are live, it should work. I use the HD-PVR2 with my DirecTV DVR, but it keeps the HDMI and component outputs live simultaneously. You may have to keep the TV off in order to record from the component outputs as I am pretty sure TiVos don't send to both outputs simultaneously.

Tivos output to all ports simultaneously. Many folks use that feature to connect to multiple TVs.
