This guide will help you set up a media server to be able to play videos on your Series 3 TiVo, using pyTiVo. (Note: this post was moved from my old blog, but has been updated a bit)

Hi folks... Used TiVo Desktop Plus to convert my TiVo files to files that I can play on my Galaxy s3. I converted to both H.264 and to MPEG4 (and yes I know that both are MPEG4)... I am assuming that these are the two best to use for the Galaxy s3... correct? I also converted one show from my Series 2 TiVo and one from my HD TiVo Premier...
Remember 2005 when the name TiVo meant something? It was a synonymous with DVRs. Crappy Comcast boxes were called TiVos because consumers didn’t know any better. TiVo subscribers were locked into the TiVo lifestyle by a sort of Stockholm syndrome, fulling willing to pay the huge retail cost of a TiVo and a relatively high monthly fee to use the system.
TiVo Inc. announced a new version of its Linux-based DVR/IP set-top box (STB) called the TiVo Premiere Q -- said to enable recording four streams at once while simultaneously transmitting three HD streams to other devices via a LAN. The company also announced its first non-DVR STB, the TiVo Preview, which can be used as a thin client multi-room extension for other TiVo devices....
Tivo just announced that they have developed a sling box competitor that attaches to Tivo Premiers and streams content through an ethernet connection. This would be great if they supported anything other than iOS5.1+ operating systems.
Once this item is out, what are the chances that a developer would be able to mimic/hack the app for android use?
The day new TiVo owners have been waiting for is finally here!
One of the big selling points of the new TiVo Roamio family of DVRs was the ability to connect it to the company's mobile apps and be able to stream and download all your favorite live or recorded TV programming. But it wasn't available when the products first went on sale back in August.
Well, anyway, now it is.
