View Full Version : Publish Videos to TiVo?
07-19-2006, 10:24 PM
Is there any way to publish a video I received in an email (for example, a wmv file) to the TiVo desktop so that I can watch it on my TV? Music and Photos seem to be the only option.

You need to convert it to a TiVo compliant MPEG2 first, then you publish it with TiVo Desktop 2.2 or higher.

Thanks for the info!
I found a bunch of utilities for converting videos from one format to the other. Anyone have a reccomendation or favorite?
Also, I'm still not clear on how to "publish" the video to the desktop. It seems to only use picture or sound files.

Nevermind. I found the support article describing how to do this:
Transferring Personal Video from PC to TiVo DVR (http://customersupport.tivo.com/knowbase/root/public/tv251080.htm?)

Been poking around in Nero, and can't figure out how to convert, for example, a wmv file to MPEG. Has anyone done this yet?

I do it all the time. Check out this section:
If you're running windows, there's tons of threads on the subject. If you have a Mac check out the thread dedicated to Tivo Desktop 1.93

Thanks Rosincrans. I found some of the other threads about conversions and hope I can get at least ONE of those to work for me!
