    I have a Tivo wireless G USB adaptor and was wondering if it was possible to convert it to ethernet for use with the HR20?

    The HR20 does not support USB Ethernet. You will need a gaming adapter or an Ethernet Wireless Bridge to network without a wired connection to the HR20.

    One of the popular gaming adapters that I've seen around here is the Linksys WGA54G. I'm running three of them myself and haven't really had any major issues.

    They work flawlessly for me as well.

    I've seen USB to ethernet adapters, but never seen one the other way around. So you want to go from ethernet, to USB, then wirelessly to your network? I don't think you'll be able to make that happen.
