    I read some posts about Nero working for TiVo files, but nothing very new. Does anyone know if I purchase the latest Nero if I will be able to trasnfer my TiVo stuff to DVD?

    My version, Nero 6 does work with Tivo files, so I would think version 8 would as well.

    If you can wait, I would check out this thread.

    Due to Neros lack of support (topic for another thread), I'm never again going to pay for a Nero product.

    Nero 7 does NOT work with tivo files... at least not on a machine running Vista Home Premium. Only time will tell if they fix that in Version 8.

    FYI -- In Nero 6, when browsing for videos, I have to select "all files" for Nero to 'see' my .Tivo files. Maybe the same for you?

    That was the first thing I tried when Nero 7 couldn't see .tivo files. That allows me to see that the files exist, but Nero 7 is unable to handle them. I first need to use some other program, such as VideoReDo, to convert the file to a format that Nero 7 can handle.

    Nero 6 was the last Nero version that could handle TiVo files, as far as I've read.

    I've been using Nero 7 on Vista (Business) for a few months now with no real problems. My father-in-law has Nero 7 on XP, and it works fine for him, too. Not sure about 8, but Tivo support didn't stop with version 6.

    How odd. I have Vista (Home Premium) and Nero 7 (Ultra Edition), and Nero definitely doesn't handle .tivo files... at least not for me!

    I just received this from Nero support:

    "Thank you for your e-mail. Unfortunately .tivo files are not supported in the current release of Nero 8. This might change with a future update."

    I've been a loyal user of Nero for years, but it looks like they've seen my credit card for the last time!

    I am using Nero to burn TIVO shows captured on my home computer from TIVO2Go. I'm converting the shows to mpeg format and then burning with a Sony DVD writier (external). I'm noticing that after the burn, when watching fast-moving scenes on a standard television, the clarity is fuzzy. It's only fuzzy in the fast-moving scenes (e.g. people running).

    I'm thinking the fuzziness might be caused by the DVD writer burning at maximum speed. If I manually set the DVD writer to a slower speed, I'm wondering if the clarity will improve. Or, is the problem being caused by using mpeg format?

    FYI - I use the "2-Pass " feature in Nero when setting up the files to burn.

    Any thoughts on improving the clarity??
