With a lot of work, it's theoretically possible (VPN between houses). However, most broadband is limited to 128-384kbps upstream. This is about 26-78 times slower than a normal network. This means it will take about 1-3 days to upload a one hour, high quality video.

Plus probably violates the TOS with Tivo inc, plus will violate copyright law.

Why do you keep rewinding that? Because with TiVo, I can.

I'm not sure about the TOS, but the law may well depend upon if he owns both TiVo's (and/or houses). Consider the option where someone has a weekender cabin. Both are in the same "household".

If the houses are close enough, you could just use wireless 802.11 adapters. Even at a bit of a distance, you could do point-to-point with special antennas assuming line-of-sight.

If it's not in a wireless range, I agree the upload speed is likely to be a huge barrier. But, some broadband accounts are starting to boost the upload speed enough that it might be possible to do an overnight transfer between machines. I don't think you'd want to try a 2-hour show on Best though (might take a day or two to transfer).
