I've had a S2 Tivo for some time, but only want to use it like an old VCR for recording over the air broadcasts. When I bought it the salesman ( who wanted the sale ) said sure, I could do that. Not mentioning that there was a HUGE fee to subscribe to Tivo. . . I don't need to pay $12 a month for a TV Guide. By NOT subscribing my Tivo refuses to work . . . Is there a way to bypass the subscription and just record programs over the air ?
Thanks in advance for any help.
