Is it possible to network-attach a DirectTV Tivo?

I have two Direct TV Tivos in my home that I would like to attach to my home network.  However, I'm concerned that doing so would negatively impact the ability to use the current Direct TV software that is installed on these units.  Does anyone have experience with this kind of configuration?  I'd appreciate any direction that you can give me.  Thanks in advance!

Adding the networing

Adding the networing capability is really 'in addition to' the existing dtv software.  Stand alone tivos offer this as their typical setup, but dtv tivos don't inlcude it for some reason.  Goto ptvupgrade.com and plug in your box type.  It will then show you a host of diy modifications that you can make, including the ptvnet (networking) modification.
