Without the hard disk and the original software it is not a deal unless
you are a hardware hacker. You will not be able to put any sort of
normal distro on it, or use the video I/O hardware.
Now, you *may* be able to find on some tivo hacking sites someone with
the same model tivo to give you an image of their system, and you can
buy a new remote from tivo's website. You will still need to then
purchase service and everything.
