kiwipearls: Tivo can't record Sky :-(
I know there is a way, but apparently it is very complicated.
I can't see how with no imputs or the option to record anything other than channels it picks up.
Are yout thinking of TiVo in the US? I know from the beginning they could record satellite or cable, it had [or at least, used to have] an attached IR device which would change the satellite receiver to a specific channel at a pre-programmed time and the TiVo would start recording, presumeably through an input.
