I doubt anyone has done it.  You COULD likely do some funky-ness by
setting up a dummy recorder and doing tomfoolery with the channel
change scripts.

WHY though?  Using the tivo as a frontend is a "I can see why"
prospect.  This is just plain silly seeing how cheap analog tuner
cards with svideo-in are, seeing as that's all a tivo is for capture.
