“ I have finally had a question that I couldn't find enough info on so i figured I would ask the experts. I am interested in Putting all my movies from DVD onto a tivo, if its possible. Now if it is possible would I be able to utilize DVI outputs from my DVD player to the Tivo? Once you get the movies onto the Tivo would it just play the movie or would it show the main menu of the movies? The reason why I am interested in doing this is because I am tired of taking in and out DVD's and don't really care for the jukebox DVD players. I think it would be cool to be able to scroll through a menu and be able to watch whatever dvd I own without having to pull out a DVD. Thank. “
