    Cowboom has refurbs for $99. Any chance they can work as a second viewer of .tivo files?

    .tivo files are just .mpg files in a .tivo container which can be a plain .mpg file with TivoDecode.

    If you convert the .tivo's to .mpgs, then hack your AppleTV (ATVFlash is the easiest way to do it, but there are free options) to install Perian so it can play more formats.
