    I have some .avi files that i sometimes watch on my laptop and sometimes watch on one of my tv's off one of my tivo premiers. I store these files on an external hdd on my network and use tivo desktop to transfer them to my tivo.
    They still play fine on a computer but the audio is missing when i try to play them through either of my 2 premiers.
    Thanks for your help.

    Probably not what you want to hear, but use pyTivo instead of TiVo Desktop to transfer the files.

    Tivo Desktop does not work the same way as PyTivo does, and has more features, such as push, which does not do much transcoding as when you pull from playlist.

    You need to post more information about the videos themselves using something like mediainfo. TiVo Desktop probably can't handle the audio stream if it's ac3. pyTivo would most likely work.
