I have an old Series 2 TiVo unit and would like to place a collection of old shows on the hard drive for viewing. These were previously saved on my computer using TiVo Desktop and later kmttg. My plan was to buy a subscription for a while in order to accomplish this. When I contacted TiVo recently, I was told they are no longer selling new subscriptions for Series 2. So my question is, does anyone know of an alternative way to copy/transfer these shows? I should mention that I have one of those models that requires a PROM replacement in order to hack (not a practical solution for me), although I don't know if that would be absolutely required for this kind of once-and-done action. Also the TiVo will not connect to my wifi unless I let it access the internet, I assume to call home first. I have not done that in case it would lead to some kind of irreversible inactivation, and also out of concern that it might cause a problem with my current active subscription. I am looking for a way to either transfer the shows to the TiVo directly or to its hard drive if mounted in my computer. Any helpful advice would be much appreciated.
