My head is about to explode!! I am getting a new tivo, I have not owned one for about 2 years. I used to use the tivo desktop but I am not even going to try that again, it never worked well for me. So, I have been exploring alternatives. So, far I have found

J. River Media
Galleon Tv

I know J. River costs and that does not bother me at all. What I am trying to find out what are the differences in these three options. What does one do that others don't? Is there one that simply works better then the others? I am so far leaning on J. River as it seems to be the easiest. But I am wanting to see what other people can tell me about these before I even download anything and try to set it up.

Never heard of J River Media.

I use PyTivo and KMTTG. PyTivo is also like a server similar to Tivo desktop, only better. It lets you get video to and from the TiVo.

Original S1 (Recycle Heaven)
Series 2 (PLS, sold)
TiVo HD (XL, PLS, "652")
Juliet Basic (4XL, PLS)

People used to talk about J River a lot. I guess it still works? but all the info I can find on it seems old (Series 2 era). It appears that, with TiVo, it only does Music and Photos. (?)

Galleon is also a bit dated at this point, but certainly an interesting project.
