Honestly, I think you'll be better off getting a device designed to do surveillance recording. They start at a few hundred dollars and have features aimed at the surveillance market. Multichannel, motion detection, time-lapse, etc. Search google for "surveillance recorder" and check ebay.

You can use the Antenna RF input to do manual recordings.
I've tried this to record things from my satellite box.
I just put the RF output right to a 'T' with the rooftop antenna cable.

The main problem is that the Tivo automatically names the recording with whatever is showing on the program guide of the "donor" channel (channel 3 in my case). The other problem is the quality is terrible since it is going through RF modulation.

I suppose you could get an RF modulator for a video camera. But I agree with previous post. It would be better to spend money on a dedicated surveillance recorder.

If it is modulated on an analog channel 99 or below, any standalone can tune it.

Any subbed TiVo, TiVo that comes with TiVoBasic, or older Series 1, can record.
