How to Use This Book

Hacks are generally considered quick-n-dirty, pragmatic solutions to hardware and software problems, or interesting techniques for getting a task done. TiVo, being just a shiny PC with a generalized operating system and expandable via all-but off-the-shelf parts, has proven eminently hackable.

Communities of TiVo hackers have sprung up on the Internet, the most well-know being the TiVo Forum (http://www.tivocommunity.com/). In this book, I’ve collected and written up some of the more useful, interesting, and cool hacks I’ve found. There are hardware hacks, requiring you to pop the top off your TiVo and fiddle about with the innards. There are software hacks, requiring a little less manual dexterity but no less of a sense of adventure. And, for the faint of heart, there are remote control hacks you can do from the comfort of your favorite armchair.
