    I was all excited about Tivo to Go UNTIL I found that it will not work with DirecTv with Tivo receivers. I have a Hughes 35 hour unit and would like to network it with my computer so that I can record programs to DVD. I foresee no problems with installing a network card (either wired or wireless), and my computer already has sufficient computing power (Athlon 2600), memory (1.5 gig) and storage (350 gig), as well as
    an NVidea 6800 video card and X-Fi sound card. Would my best bet be to buy a separate DirecTv receiver and a new Tivo Series 2 so that I could make use of the Tivo to Go software? One other thing-I will be upgrading my motherboard and cpu to an Athlon 64x2 on an Asus motherboard in the near futudre, and also likely upgrading Windows as well to a 64 bit version.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Using a stand alone Tivo would be the easiest way. It is not impossible to do it with a DirecTivo but the extraction process is not covered, or allowed, on this site.

    Alternatively, you could buy a DVD recorder and record your programs that way.

    Good luck finding Tivo applications that are Windows x64 compatible. :eek:

    Do some reading in the Tivo Underground forum on this site and learn how to hack your box. You'll find the info very useful.

    Will the future DirecTvToGo support what you want?
