When using Tivo Decoder GUI and Tivo Premiere Elite unit and Tivo Desktop Software my problem is when I click Decode Instantly I receive an error from windows stating this program is not responding then it says tivodecode.exe has stopped working, Close Program. Have I set something up wrong?! There is a file in the output folder with 0 bytes so its at least working for a second! THIS DID NOT HELP: Are you using a TiVo Premiere and TiVo Desktop to transfer the video to your PC? I recently purchased a TiVo Premiere and have discovered an incompatibility with TiVo Decoder. If you are using a TiVo Premiere, then you have to uncheck the Use the fastest method available for file transfer speed in TiVo Desktop when transferring video from your TiVo Premiere to your PC. If you have it checked then TiVo Decoder will abort with an error when attempting to convert the TiVo file to a standard MPEG2 file. If you have it unchecked then TiVo Decoder will be able to process the TiVo file.
