Playing .tivo files directly on Windows PC

I am looking for a way to play .tivo files in their native format directly on a WindowsPC without having to convert to any other format.

Is there software that does this or a specific plug-in in for a media player that would do this?

Install Tivo Desktop. It includes the necessary "plug in" required to play .tivo files in WMP.

Thank you for the tip. It does work in WMV once installed. Do you know of any way to have the WMV plug-in without the overhead of the Tivo Desktop?

Yes go Add/Remove Programs and choose option to leave only "Partial" TiVo Desktop installation when removing it. This will leave the necessary DirectShow files needed for WMP to play .TiVo files and clear out all the other TiVo Desktop mess.
