Tivo Series 1 Help Please

Hi everyone
Wondered if someone could help a Tivo Novice.
I live Canada so it complicates things a little.
I have just obtained a series 1 Philips tivo and want to make it work in canda.
Has anyone tried this before?
I mean taking a series 1 and making work without a subscription (the Canada part af the problem)
I look forward to any help any one can gice me.
I am not a complete novice when it comes to technical aspects just the tivo bits.

You can sub it, you just need to use a proxy in the TiVo, to feed your postal code to the TiVo servers.
Otherwise you can use it as a plain recorder.
