Advertisements I found a TiVo at a Goodwill store today for $15. Thinking "Oh neat, I've always kinda wanted one of these." No cables, no remote. Being the geek I am I decided to buy it anyways to make some sort of media center. When i got home I started googling how to run custom kernels and what-not on the box, since I read it was basically a linux comp. Now all the posts are from 2004-2009, and I'm looking for something not-archived or 404'd. Do I still need to do the PROM hardware mod, or is there an easier way? Model: TCD540040 Series "2.5" Havn't even plugged it in any further than seeing the lights turn on. Also, what are the benefits of running an unsigned kernel? I don't plan on getting a subscription, and I'd really like to use it as a media center since it fits in nicely with my other equipment on the shelf.
