    Does anyone have any data on how long it takes Desktop Plus to convert a tivo file to ipod format? Roughly?

    On a dual core AMD X2 4200+ HP Pavilion PC with 2G of RAM it takes roughly twenty five minutes per hour of show that was recorded at medium on a 595 TiVo. Shows recorded at Basic on a 540 are slightly faster.

    Your speed will vary depending on the PC's processor, RAM and hard drive speeds. Your speed will vary depending on the recording quality you set on the TiVo. Your speed will vary depending on the TiVo model number. For some TiVo models the different recording qualities produce different file sizes and bit rates.

    Your mileage will vary.
