There are no other "official" windows apps besides TiVo Desktop. However there are two community supported apps called pyTiVo and Streambaby that offer much more functionality then the official app. They can be a bit tricky to setup initially, but once they're running they are basically seamless and work better then the official app.

They serve different purposes. pyTiVo is basically a Tivo Desktop replacement. It does everything TiVo Desktop does but better. Streambaby is for streaming video from your PC to the TiVo. That's all it does.

And both work under Linux and MacOS, which makes them 1,000 better.
