Hi Grant,

I don't know much about these things but I was looking for something
that would allow me to record TV shows from a satellite input.

We have installed a 2.1 metre satellite dish that currently points to
eight different satellites (not simultaneously of course) so we get lots
of free to air satellite TV programmes. My wife likes some Chinese shows
but they are on late at night. We would like to record these shows so
she can watch them later at a more convenient time. Can we do this with
the Tivos or can we modify them to do that? If so then I would be
interested in getting one.
