    I have tivo premier and I've installed tivo desktop on my vista based PC. I've used tivo desktop to transfer a couple files to the PC. From there I copied the .tivo files to a external drive and took them over my linux machine (fedora core 12) where I had configured, built, and installed tivodecode 0.3pre4. When I try to run tivodecode it chokes. I'm new at this so maybe there is a better solution out there.

    Thanks for any help.

    16$ tivodecode --version

    One possible reason:
    In Tivo Desktop, go to File -> Preferences.
    Do you have the box under 'File Transfer Speed' checked? (see attatched image)

    If so, uncheck that box and re-transfer the program.

    With the box checked, you are getting the TS (transport stream) version of the file (new feature with the introduction of the Premiere) and has shown to be problematic for some applications.
