(tried to search, but no answers here or elsewhere...) 1) I convert DVDs to mpeg-2 (mpg) (on windows). Formats that work: - 720x480, 2000kbps; audio MP2, 128 kbps bitrate, 2 channel stereo 2) Move that mpg to my linux box running pyTivo. 3) I "pull" the mpg to Tivo HD and watch successfully. I can watch the movie fine. I can even pause it. However, I can't rewind, fast forward, etc. I can only pause or start over from the beginning. I've read that is because there's no frame info in the MPEG-2, so Tivo doesn't know how to move within the file. What's the exact format that will allow moving within the movie? Not only what format, but what parameters are needed? Bitrates, audio encoders, etc. I have a number of different programs that rip/convert well for me: Aiseesoft Blu-Ray Ripper Cucusoft DVD Ripper Ultimate. I read that Videora Tivo Converter works well, but I can't get it to work -- basically, what are the correct parameters to use so that Tivo is happy? Any help? Thanks.
