TiVo

Wow, I am a bit late to the Tivo-hacking party.

I started looking at it today because I’d really like to get rid of the landline, and pretty much the only reason I am tied to it is the DSL and Tivo. I Googled a bit for wireless upgrades and saw the adapter that 9thtee.com is selling…hmm…you need to add your own PRISM2/2.5 wireless card. Looked on ebay and Froogle, and they were running an extra $60. That plus the $70 for the adapter and I might as well get a new Tivo…but mine has lifetime sub…oh hell I just won’t bother.

[hours pass]

HOLY SHIT, this old Linksys WPC11 card I have sitting *on my desk* is PRISM2! Duuh!

So I’ve ordered the adapter thingie. Once I get Tivo updating over the net, that gives me (along with moving my little laptop server to Jen’s or a colo) the freedom to get the cheap no-static-ip broadband if I want, and get rid of the landline!

I also registered gloof.com. No idea why. It seems I will spend time doing almost anything to put off Christmas shopping…

    Another option would be the TurboNet or even CacheCard and then use an external WiFi bridge. Going with the CacheCard would give you the performance boost too.
