View Full Version : DVD movies accessible to Tivo server

Could use some advice on how to make DVD movies accessible to TIVO through Windows Tivo server. Using AnyDVD and DVDRipper. What is the process if any to make this work. Time to transcode is not an issue as long as it will work. Thanks for any input.

Some DVDs are already in a format TiVo can understand. If you use DVD Decrypter, in IFO processing mode, to extract a single large VOB file (uncheck everything except the audio and video tracks) then simply rename the .vob file to .mpg it should transfer and play on the TiVo.
However that doesn't work for all DVDs, or all TiVos. DVDs which are encoded at 24fps will not work on any TiVo, and the newer 540 series TiVos have problems with 16:9 animorphic videos. However it still might be worth a try, since it'll save you a whole lot of time reencoding the video. :)
