    if this can be done it would be amazing !

    i can get my music off my local network to play only if i reset from scratch, but as soon as the tivo updates it breaks again.

    (it seems tivo broke it with an update accidentally on purpose to force us to use the paid music services they get a cut from).

    a way to block the updates would allow me to use the machine i paid for as it was intended when i bought it.

    i do not have the energy to take them to court and sue them to fix it, but i am pretty sure what they did was not legal.

    in any case, if anyone has a way to block the tivo box from updating it could help a lot of tivo owners.

    The certs worked for a month now its broke again. ridiculous it depends on certs which are obviously easily gotten by. What is really needed is a hack to the software to NOT need to verify ANYTHING ANY MORE! waiting for a new fix! can someone help!

    I am happy for you. may be the latest version of Windows 10 [1803]. I think I am switching to pytivo if I can figure out how to watch .TiVo movies it downloads to my pc.

    pyTivo Desktop installs and works easily. It also can be set to automatically "decrypt" files it downloads into .mpeg files (and even if you don't set it to do so, you later can decrypt the files with TiVo Decoder GUI, which also works well).

    Otherwise, I downloaded the freeware K-Lite Codec Pac (Download K-Lite Codec Pack) which allows .tivo files to be played in Windows Media Player (altho, for me, the back and forward controls get grayed out). It hasn't seemed to work for GOM Player, however, my preferred video player, and I wish I could find a codec to download for use there (if anyone has a suggestion).

    Glad I found this thread. Replacing those two files fixed the issue 100%

    Thanks

    ? Are you looking for the replacement files, so that TiVo Desktop still will function?

    I'm not home right now, but if you PM me your email address, I'd be happy to download the files (actually, I already have them) and then try to email them to you later today. They're tiny files.

    Where are you getting 'stuck'?

    The two replacement files are inside the RAR Archive from @gigaquad that I QUOTE'd again to make it easier. A RAR is like a ZIP - a method to compress and group one or more files into one 'container' for ease of downloading / transporting everything required in one step. If you're using a Windows PC:
    1. Download the archived file to a place where you can easily find it (your desktop?).
    2. Using WinRar or 7-Zip (download and install if you don't already have either), open the archive and extract the two files, again to a place where you can find them.
    3. Copy the extracted files to where they belong in your TiVo Desktop directory (either overlay the existing files or renamed the existing files).
    4. Done!
    If you're on a Mac, GOOGLE is your friend - never used a Mac myself. ;)
