    Hi,

    Is there a simple way (step-by-step guide?) to change the bit rate on SAS2 Tivos? I really just want to change the maximum quality as close to broadcast quality (720x480) as possible, for shows I want to burn to DVD.

    Thanks,
    BR

    Not within the context of this forum. You have to ahck the DVR to put TiVoWebPlus to start, then go from there.

    Hi Classicsat,

    Thank you for your reply. I've been doing a lot of research based off your reply, but I have only one unanswered question. I won't discuss specifics but are TiVoWebPlus and similar h@ck$ possible on SAS2 units? Do I need to get my PROMs flashed?

    Thanks,

    Yes.

    You will need the PROM mod if you have a 5xx DVR.

    You still need a PROM mod for 5xx and newer DVRs, to do OS hacks, which TWP is.
