Has anyone done anything with old Tivos? . Is it good for anything outside the category of doorstops? Thanks!? Answered



I 've taken out the hard drive, connected it to a laptop or desktop via a USB adapter, formatted it and used it in other PCs either as a slave or primary drive.

I'm ok with that, but first I'd like to rule out the possibility that someone has converted it to a time machine or other useful gadget. But thanks!

If it works, you could freecycle it.
