    Is it possible to record a video, home movie etc. from a VCR on to a Tivo?

    If you connect the RF-out of the VCR to the RF-in on the Tivo, and tune the Tivo to channel 3|4 (whichever the VCR is setup to output on) I don't see why not.

    Yes, but it is cludgy, since the TiVo is designed to be a TV recorder, not a video recorder.

    To do it, you'd have to redo GS telling it you have a satellite box.

    Or if it's just a one-time thing, you could pull whatever input it's already using and attach that to the VCR. Then set up a manual recording - just pressing record will record until the end of the Show that TiVo THINKS it's recording.
