Yeah, another little bird told me the same thing, but it's not a bird I trust overly much. When my TiVos are getting all the scheduled SDV programming, I'll believe it. Or maybe I'll just switch from TWC to Grande. I've been threatening to do that for a while. Grande is certainly cheaper. I can't really say for certain. I looked up BeyondTV, and the support site says it can write MPEG-2 files, which really should be compatible with the TiVo, but should and are can be two different things. You might have to run them through a pre-processor like QuickFix in VideoRedo. Try it and see. You alos might try pyTiVo if TiVo Desktop doesn't work (or maybe just because pyTiVo works better than TiVo Desktop).
