I think you will find that it wont work in NZ TIVO's - something to do with our version storing recorded data in TS (transport stream) format that the application cannot read.

Yes.. Streambaby won't work with NZ TIVO's

http://code.google.com/p/streambaby/issues/detail?id=28

Its been know since 2009 Streambaby won't work as the way NZ/AU Tivo's stream is quite different and no one has had time to reverse engineer the NZ/AU TIVO Streaming.

The way it was got working in the 1st place ( with US TIVO's) was looking at a youtube Stream the US TIVO's Plyed but in NZ we don't have access to Youtube playing on the TIVO

I was thinking about getting a TIVO years ago but it was just too expensive at $1000 odd dollars. These days you can if your lucky get one for about $150 S/H but TIVO is quite dead in NZ.

Unless some wants to give me one for free and then I'd have to buy the media key/NHP for $90! argh
