    Hey,

    I have the Premiere TiVo and am wondering if it's possible to record Xbox LIVE gameplay with it.

    1. Is it possible?
    2. If so, how?
    3. Will the graphics be good?
    4. How can I get it on my PC?

    Well, you could feed the A/V of the Xbox to an RF modulator (an old VCR would do), and then the RF to the TiVo and manually record channel 3 or 4 so I suppose yeah, it's possible.

    The graphics would probably suffer.

    You could transfer the recordings to your PC using TiVo Desktop or pyTiVo.

    Note: to do any of this, the TiVo has to be subscribed.

    It's all about how you connect the xBox to your PC (there probably are other ways, but this is the most flexible!)

    I found a great guide I used here:
    gamefront.com/how-to-record-hd-xbox-360-gameplay

    Hope that helps ;)

    How exactly is that relevant to his desire to record it on the TiVo?

    Is it possible to split the signal out of the xbox? Send one to the Tivo and one to the TV so the gameplay wouldn't suffer but it would record fine?

    Just a thought, throwing it out there

    If you were doing composite (yellow-RCA plug; analog) video output to a RF-modulator, sure. Just a few RCA y-splitters between the xbox and the modulator/vcr should work fine.

    There's only one A/V output on the 360, so you couldn't plug in both a composite and a high-def vga or component cable. (There are some 3rd-party octopus cables with every type of output, but I don't know if multiple types are active at once)

    And for newer 360's that have HDMI the normal A/V cable physically blocks the HDMI port, so you'd have to do some hacking to hook both up, and then I don't know if both types of video run simultaniously. (RCA or optical audio will work with HMDI video; but not sure about video)
