I'm not sure this is even proper to ask here but here goes. I have been given a Tivo HDMI Premiere to see if i can "hack" it to make it do one simple task. All it needs to do is to pause a live video feed for a while. The scenario is as follows: A live presentation in one room is sent to another room for an alternate audience. The second room is not always ready to view this presentation at the same time as the live room so when that happens we used to simply hit pause. This worked for some time until recently the Tivo stopped pausing. I was told that this is a consequence of failure to pay for a tivo subscription. Since in this instance we have no need for anything Tivo has to offer it seems unfair to have to pay for this functionality. Is this easily accomplished, or is this the wrong place to ask?
