3. The TiVo Shell > 46. Playing MP3s on your TiVo

Playing MP3s on your TiVo

The Series 2 and Home Media Option allow you to play MP3s on your TiVo. Why not play them on the Series 1 as well?

Why not take advantage of that shiny box under your television to play some music when your TV-addled eyes need a rest? That’s exactly what some TiVo hackers did long before the Home Media Option [Hack #63] came out for the Series 2.

Tip

The Series 1 was not designed for playing MP3s. Its 50 MHz processor is going to be seriously strained when you execute this hack. While nothing horrible is going to happen, don’t expect to get concert quality sound from your television.
