Have anyone had any success on using TiVo Desktop to move content recording from the TiVo to a media center PC?
We have the TiVo always on, but the HTPC only at certain times. I was thinking of leaving the TiVo doing recordings and then have these transferred to the HTPC using TiVo desktop.
The original file transfer (.tivo) can't be played by Windows Media Center. I set the option to convert to media player and selected H.264 - the image is about 1/2 size of the screen. I then changed that to Zune HD and the picture is full screen and a lot better.
However only about a third of the encoded material can be played. The rest won't even start.
Any tips or pointers on how to get a better success rate?
