Backing Up Your TiVo Software

Before you get too involved in hacking your TiVo, back it up!

This is probably the most important thing you can do before you delve too far into hacking your TiVo. You don’t want to be scouring the Internet frantically looking for somebody to give you their backup of the TiVo software (not only hard to find, but sometimes a beast to download) or left with a lemon underneath your television.

The backup itself needs to be made only once, and it can take up to 1.5 GB of space, although fully compressed it may be as small as 150 MB. Once you have made the backup and have confirmed that it works, feel free to burn it to a CD-R or a DVD-R somewhere and just keep it locked away for that one day when you might take your hacking a bit too far.
