- The old pre 9.1 HDTV show I transferred crashed Media Player consistently after 10 sec or so. An SD show worked fine (except for the audio problem).
PC playback issues are almost always codec related. The recording transferred to your PC is 100% bit-for-bit identical to that on the Tivo.
If you are using Windows, you might try installing the codec pack below:
During setup, check MPEG-2, DVD and choose Cyberlink. For MPEG-1, DVD select Microsoft. For the second part of the installation, choose Windows Media Player as the default media player. Reboot and try playback again.
