4. Bring the Internet to TiVo > 50. Getting Your TiVo Series 2 Online

Getting Your TiVo Series 2 Online

The TiVo Series 2 comes with online access baked in. Plug in a USB-to-Ethernet or USB-to-WiFi adapter, and your TiVo’s a first-class citizen on your home network.

While it might be useful to have your TiVo online via another computer [Hack #47], purists are sure to find it quite frustrating to see a fledgling Linux box not be able to spread its wings. Owners of the Series 2 Standalone TiVo are in luck. TiVo, Inc. has partnered with Linksys (http://www.linksys.com/), makers of networking and WiFi equipment for work and home, to take its users’ TiVos online. TiVo recommends two adapters: the WUSB11 Version 2.6 (a WiFi 802.11b adapter from Linksys’ “Instant Wireless Series”) and the USB100TX USB-to-Ethernet (10/100 BaseT) adapter from their “Instant Etherfast Series.”
