    I just bought Roxio Creator NXT to edit out the commercials from my Tivo series 4 Premier. I download the tivo files to my pc with tivo desktop 2.8.3 without any problems. Tivo won't let you download copy protected files and are shown with a red circle with a slash going through it. When I tried to transfer the file into NXT it won't show the file and says that the file is DRM protected. I am using a windows 7, 64-bit, windows explorer 9. Tivo shows a tutorial of downloading an episode of "MAD MEN" to the PC and then selecting it to be edited in Creator NXT. I tested a file that wasn't HD and it didn't work. It seems like the tivo file has the DRM in it enough for windows 7 or explorer 9 to sense it in NXT. Has anyone been abel to make this work?

    Thanks

    The .TiVo file is a DRM protected file,but it can be removed with TivoDecode, or KMTTG which also has TivoDecode, also free.

    I use a better program to edit programs, VideoReDo TVSuite. It also burns DVDs. It also handles .TiVo files.

    I would suggest returning Roxio NXT and purchase VideoReDo TVSuite. kmttg is free and the developer is on this forum for support as is the developer for VRD.

    You will have a far better experience if you drop Tivo Desktop and Roxio for the recommended apps supported here in the community. Head over to the Home Media section for much more help on this subject.

    In Tivo Desktop under 'File' -> 'Preferences', do you have the box checked to allow for faster transfers?

    If so, uncheck the box and retransfer the program from the Tivo. Some software programs choke on .tivo files that are transferred using the faster method.

    That is the name of the software I was trying to remember. It is probably on my old Vista machine. Thanks for your advice!:)

    If you need your key to unlock VideoReDo just send us and email at support with your full name and the email address you used to purchase and we can look it up for you.

    Which version of VideoReDo would one need to do this? I want to be able to burn HD videos to Blu-Ray...

    No version of VideoReDo currently supports BluRay. If you use TVSuite v4 with H.264 you can output to a BluRay compatible file, but you'd need to use another program to actually author and burn the disc.
