Advertisements Yes, responsiveness and ease of use, are really the only reason to go with VR. (Oh, and Ad-Detective is preat slick too!) But I couldn't stand using Nero Vision for cutting commercials. If you use NV, you'll probably have to use DSD in order to have much success at it. You don't need additional equipment. At the bottom of your Tivo's Now Playing List you should see your PC listed as a folder. (If you have TivoDesktop installed on you PC). Just open it up and start uploading files back to your Tivo. They don't have to be just .tivo files either. Finally, you don't have to buy VR to reattach the .tivo headers to your freed/edited .mpg files either. My little app Tivo Attach does it just fine, but VR is 10x more convienent.
