i have the tivo premire i guess it is aka series 4 and i know the ttg downloads the box seems to be doing some kind of conversion internally because i did a test where i downloaded a show then did a crc checksum on the file.
then i downloaded that show again and ran another crc and found the 2 are different.
also i know some conversion is happening because i got a couple shows that will not download or abort halfway but yet they play ok all the way through on the box.
if i try to resume the download then the server crashes to where i have to reboot the box.
what i was wondering is since i have no hdmi device connected to the box (dont need it since i can download most shows and i avoid content that is protected) the box is unable to output in full resolution so would that effect the quality/resolution of the downloaded file?
if i connect a display that supports the full 1080p to the tivo box will the internal converter see "ok you have an hdmi device connected here is the full quality/resolution file"?
