Top 5 Painless TiVo Mods May 11, 2007

tivo_s3_tight.jpgTop of the list is that 30-second skip function, where TiVo slyly hides a capability that can only be activated with a certain combination of key presses (Select, Play, Select, 3. 0, select while you’re playing a recording), thus avoiding lawsuits but retaining one of the box’s best functions. Once you’ve entered this combination, you can blast through commercial breaks with a few presses of the ->| button. It’s is the lowest effort/highest return hack on the list.

There’s more!
Zatz also explains how you can expand your TiVo’s storage (a bit more difficult than the other hacks), transfer video to TiVo (which, alas, is not possible with our Series3 HD TiVo), removing TiVoToGo DRM (also not possible on the Series3 yet), and streaming music over your home network.

This is a useful list for those who aren’t comfortable performing major surgery but are beyond wearing TiVo ears on a blind date.
