This may very well be a dumb as dirt question, but before I started mucking around with the wires and whatnot, I figured I'd ask some of you experts. Got a crapload of video shot on Hi-8 tape. I'd like to digitally encode it. I suppose I could get a video capture card for the PC, but I've never particularly liked messing with those (hate all the formats and quality settings, etc...). Before I resort to that, I figure why not give the device I own that is dedicated to encoding video a shot at it first? I suppose my theory would be to trick the TiVo into thinking it is recording a program but have my camera providing the input. Once encoded, I can shoot the resultant file across my home LAN to my PC network for editing and whatnot. Space should not be a problem. Have a Series 2 unit with 800GB of HDD space. I appreciate your input and apologize if this is a FAQ that I didn't notice.
