    Not a chance... very different hardware.
    Unfortunately, this question also falls under the heading "theft of service", so can't be discussed here (series 2 tivos are sold to ONLY be used with an active subscription)

    Sorry I did not know that using something that you 'OWN' is against the law. Sammae

    While you may "technically" own the hardware, certain features and functions are tied to a paid service. If you have to manually record with a sub, you don't want to purchase a heavily subsidized DVR. You didn't think there wasn't a catch to the $69 price, did you?

    Well then, but a non-service DVR from them. Yes, you will pay a premium for it, compared to a service-required TiVo.

    :eek: I just bought a DT Series 2. Can I just switch the drive from my regular Series 2? I want to keep the programs that I have on it.

    NO!!!

    The recordings are encoded to the TiVo. The only two ways are TiVo1 --> PC --> TiVo2 with TiVo DeskTop or TiVO1 --> TiVo2 with Multi Room Viewing
