Hi, I have a series 2, and I canceled my subscription a while back to go with DISH DVR. The feature I miss is using some software to stream videos from my mac to the TIVO (software is called VisualHub). You can't stream anything to a TIVO with out a subscription. Does anyone know a way to unlock that? THanks!

That would be Theft of Service and is generally disdained here and not talked about.

Yeah, no way to use a TiVo like that without subscribing. You can always build a low-end computer to do that for you...... or buy an apple tv.

This should not be theft of service. I am using a box I purchased, with software I own to stream videos that I have. I'm not using the box for any of the recording features. Seems odd to disable that. Certainly seems more legit that some of the "hacks" i've seen in these forums.

except that TiVo=Box + subscription.
Is a cablebox of any use without a sub?
How about that Dish network receiver?
