    Question for some of the new "stream" users. Once a show/movie is downloaded to the ipad...are the files (show/movie) present in the main "VIDEOS" app on the ipad? or can you only view the downloaded shows/movies using the Tivo App?

    No, it is a closed ecosystem. You can use TiVo desktop or KMTTG to acomplish that if you would like

    I'm assuming the files are encrypted?

    Doesn't matter really, since the app wont run on a Jailbroken device and an unhacked iOS wont allow apps to access each other's storage, there is no way to access the files anyway. Plus even if they were unencrypted you can only transfer stuff that's not protected, so it's really no different then TiVoToGo.

    Actually, you can pull the apps stored files from an itunes backup without being jailbroken. Several utilities are out there to help with this.

    Intereting. Someone should try that and see if it lets you access the recordings.
