    I have a netbook running Windows 7 Starter. When I transfer a show to my TiVo desktop on that computer, it would not play at all in windows media player, just a musical note would appear in the player and nothing would happen. I updated some codecs and then I was able to play sound, but still no video, just a musical note. TiVo desktop works just fine on my other computer. Any ideas on what I can do to get it to work on my more portable netbook?

    Sorry - no solution -- just wanted to say, "Same here." Tried downloading GOM player, but still just musical notes. What is up with that?? One of the reasons I got a netbook was to watch videos and Tivo shows.

    2.8.1 comes with a new troubleshooting tool under the Help menu item. Give that a try and see if anything useful comes up.
