I bought a new DVD player that can access files on my computer but it would not play Tivo files. I did a search on converting them and found that some people recomended Direct Show Dump to do it. I could not get the program to install. I did a search on it here in the forums and a post came up from Greg Burns from Nov of 2007 that gave me the info I needed and now I can remove the Tivo wrapper and play the videos thru my Sony DVD player. With all the room I have on my hard drives in the computer I wanted to store the programs there and not on the Tivo.
