I would like to be able to transfer some of my recordings on TiVo over to the computer. There was a software called TiVo Desktop I presume its now gone. Is that correct? Would there be another way to transfer recordings?

That's in Aussie. Is there somewhere I can get that from NZ?
Thanks.

That is the correct place, look closely at the URL!

All they do once you pay is provide you with a media key and a download link

you can also use kmttg after you have purchased it the network package, which I find much better than the tivo desktop softwre, where audio can get out of sync.

Pretty large amount since the tivo cost me $199, but it is worth it. Especially for the ability to move recordings from one tivo to another and watch it while it is being done. I guess it is also for the upkeep of the tivo servers, as it is a one time lifetime service fee.

How is the functionality of transferring recordings from Tivo to pc? or do you use kmttg?
you just have to buy once the HNP once and if you have an additional Tivo you have to buy another key.

Just be glad it's not Feeview certified then.  There would be no network package..

I don't believe that is true.

One media access key does for a household.

The media key is tied to your account.  So you can have multiple tivos and multiple pc's using it.
