    Hello All
    I down load 2 files around 2.5GB each and both of them will not work transfer to my TiVo HD. I use TiVoDesktop to move them across i have transferred these files before without any issues.
    Any help would be great.

    mkv is just a "container". The true encoding could be different on the inside, and could be something that isn't supported.

    Thanks for your reply
    Should I be looking out for a particular file format that will always work with TiVoHD.
    Cheers

    That's not what I meant. it's the encoding of what's in the mkv that's likely the issue. I rarely have problems with mkv's on my TiVo with the desktop software. But I can see where some would be if someone encoded it with some strange codec.
