    I own a series 2 TiVo and use it with Comcast cable. I have a large amount of shows that I want to get off the hard drive even though I put in a 300gb. I have read some topics on this board about ftping or telneting into a TiVo and using mfs_ftp to get files off of the TiVo. I have one problem. How the heck do I setup TiVo so I can ftp in? Better yet, how do I get the mfs_ftp files onto my TiVo? I tried to do some searching on the boards but came up short. The reason why I am asking is because transfering these shows with the standard TiVo Desktop software is taking an hour+ for each show which is rediculous on a LAN. Can anyone help me on this one? Thanks!

    Even though you can legally transfer via tivodesktop, I think this is technically extraction and can't be discussed here. Try the other site and search mfs_ftp.
