View Full Version : Tivo Network card buy/build

21-06-2004, 06:35 PM
Hi, I'm looking for a Tivo network card for my Series 1.
I would be interested to hear from anyone who has one for sale at a reasonable price,
but I am also interested to hear from anyone who has built one of the "kits" that are described at

I'd love to start a thread on this network card as a viable alternative to the cache card route, and maybe even create a nice "Australian builders guide"

Cheers, Spook8000

I'm fairly sure the card you are looking at potentialy building is much lower performance then the current versions. It was early in the development of network cards.

You might try asking about it on the mailing list, where the people who have used this original card are.

I think it would be very slow for transferring ty files across to your PC.
Looks like it only handles 10baseT.

If you go to the mailing list archivesd i think you will see that Tridge commented on this recently (about 2-3 months ago) the card was based on an ISA PC card and to do it now would be prohibitively expensive as well as much lower performance than the current crop of cards
