    TiVo Desktop 2.5 will only convert .AVIs if you buy the $25 Plus upgrade.

    You could also try pyTiVo or TiVo.Net (see links in my sig) which are both free applications that convert just about any video format.

    Check out the links in my sig.

    Galleon is sort of a TiVo Desktop replacement: it will host your music and photos and has other apps like weather, traffic, webcams, iTunes library support, etc.

    TiVo.Net and pyTiVo are video "servers" that will transcode a variety of video formats (like Divx, Xvid, Flash, etc.) on-the-fly to be played on your TiVo (like what TiVo Desktop plus does, but with more format support and without the $25 price tag).

    All three apps also are cross-platform, so they're not limited to just Windows.

    Please elaborate on how tivo.net is not working 'properly'.

    I have a thread here about a problem I'm having since 9.1 and was hoping that tivo.net would fix it.

    I'm just using TivoDesktop at this point, but have had no problems until 9.1, converting video from .avi to .mpg and then watching it on the tivo.

    But since 9.1, I get audio, but no video. :(
