Tivo Hardware Adventure

What a fun time I had tonight! Shira and I decided to move the Tivo into our bedroom. This was easy. The tricky part turned out to be getting a new Ethernet jack in place so we could actually plug it in.

This project involved pulling up cable through the attic and dropping it down another wall, correctly wiring the new Ethernet jack and dealing with the fact that somewhere along the lines our Tivo stopped making use of the Ethernet card I had installed in it.

I'm pretty proud of myself - every time something seemed to be going horrifically wrong, I stayed calm and worked through the problem. There may be hope for me and hardware after all.

I even accounted for every last piece, including this itty bitty plastic cap that goes over the Ethernet jack. There wasn't an extra part in sight.
