Mo’ TiVo fo’ sho’

March 7, 2005

So, I spent this past weekend ‘hacking’ my TiVo, to use the parlance of our times. Since DirecTV won’t give me the TiVo Home Media Option, I had to add it myself. What this gives you is access to photos and mp3’s on your home computer(s), and also the ability to schedule recordings remotely via a web interface. I also replaced the stock 40GB drive with a nice, juicy 160GB model so I have around 150 hours of recording capacity. W00t!!

For anyone who’s interested in hacking their DirecTiVo’s, I suggest the nice and tidy guide found here.
