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?
TiVo introduced a Linux-based DVR for cordcutters who want to eliminate cable fees by obtaining their TV content from Internet streams and OTA broadcasts. The TiVo Roamio OTA DVR assumes a place alongside Really Simple Softwares Simple.TV OTA box, which was funded on Kickstarter two years ago and stepped up to a second generation design last fall.
