OK I need to know the following:
Can a Series 3 Tivo or a Tivo HD record programs at ALL if you're NOT paying the monthly service fee?
I don't know anything about what exactly you can do with the Series 3 or the Tivo HD without paying the monthly fee.
Can you record programs at all doing that? (by setting up the recordings manually; specifiying a start/stop time for each program)
oh and BTW does the Tivo HD have Composite video (yellow plug only) AND RF (like a Coaxial post) output? or ONLY High Definition type outputs?
