Has anyone managed to use Tivo and Vuze? With or without the HNP?
any help, or advice appreciated!

Hey - yeah. I use it quite often with no problems.
I just drag and drop my video d/l from an explorer window onto the TiVo icon in Vuze and it does the format conversion.
The pc I use doesn't have HNP installed but is on my same home network as my TiVo.
The Program List on TiVo just has an extra folder on it, named after my pc, just as happens when using HNP.
Any files that have been converted by Vuze can then be copied onto TiVo's HD and are available for viewing.
Only problem I've had is a recent d/l was a dual language torrent and the wrong language was transferred and the second language wasn't available on TiVo.
Other than that I watch all my D/Ls on my telly via TiVo.
