TurboNETTM Network Connect Kit

The TurboNETTM Network Connect Kit gives you a permanent RJ45 connection to your TurboNET board that can be mounted on the outside back of the TiVo.  This kit consists of an RJ45 to RJ45 Adapter and a short Patch Cable.  One end of the patch cable is inserted thru the square hole in the bottom of the TiVo under the fan and is plugged into the TurboNETTM Card.  The other end of the patch cable is plugged into the RJ45 x RJ45 adapter and is zip tied on the back of the TiVo.  You can then plug your patch cable going to the network hub into the other side of the RJ45 jack on the adapter.

We also have quality patch cables in various lengths with boots on both ends.  Boots and cable are Gray in color.

TiVo CacheCARDTM With Network Interface



Tivo CacheCARDTM With Network Interface

Caching - The Tivo database is large (512MB) and every user-interface operation goes back to hard drive to read from the database - the same hard drive that is already busy reading and writing multiple high bit-rate video streams.  The CacheCARDTM caches the entire database in high speed SDRAM so all database reads can be fulfilled instantly, rather than joining the queue for access to the hard drive.  Database writes go directly to the hard drive so the Tivo database is always protected and is up-to-date on the hard drive.

The result?
A general speedup of the user-interface and halving the time of long operations such as re-arranging season passes.

Network - The CacheCARDTM combines caching with high-speed 100baseTX Ethernet to network your TiVo.  The new design utilizes the full 32 bit wide bus to increase efficiency of network operations.  The Ethernet network interface lets you complete your daily call using your broadband network instead of your phone line.  Other mods such as TivoWeb can be installed to use your web browser to list your TiVo's content, schedule recordings, and even control your TiVo remotely.

  •  Caches the entire TiVo database for increased user-interface response time.

  •  Write-safe - database is always written to disk and protected.

  •  Works with industry standard PC133 512MB SDRAM (customer supplied).

  •  High speed 32-bit wide 100baseTX Ethernet.

  •  Plugs directly into motherboard connector.

  •  Designed for use in all Series1 TiVo's - Stand Alone, DirecTiVo, and UK.

  •  Custom drivers installed from installation CD image (download)

Using an External Modem

So, you love your TiVo but the Modem has gone bad .  We have solutions that can help without returning your TiVo to Philips or Sony and loosing all of your recorded programming and your season passes, etc. 

This is a cable and adaptor kit used to install an external Modem to your TiVo.

This is the kit you need if you have an external serial modem that you'd like to use with your TiVo. It has a 1/8" mini stereo plug on one end of a 6' cable to plug into the serial port on the TiVo, and a DB9-DB25 adaptor on the other end to plug into the modem.

If your internal TiVo modem has failed, a standard external modem (9.6K to 56K) can be configured to work with a TiVo. We'll include instructions on how to accomplish this.

The software version on your TiVo does need to be 3.0 or above. This can be seen on the system information screen.
