Cannot play .TIVO files on Windows 10

I have Windows 10.

I cannot play .TIVO transferred files.
They open as audio only in Windows Media Player. No video.

Windows 10 does not come with an MPEG2 codec. Did your PC come with any DVD software as I can play them with PowerDVD (with TiVo Desktop installed)?

You need to install a DVD player codec. I use K-Lite_Codec_Pack_Mega
Google it, download and install. http://www.codecguide.com/download_k..._pack_mega.htm

I have found that Nortons thinks this file is a risk and deletes it after downloading. I sent an email to Nortons about it and they said that it is a mistake and will fix it in the next update. Til then you can use the recover button to restore the file.
