    I can play transferred programs with Windows Media Player. However, the "play speed" controls do not work. I cannot fast forward or run at 2x speed. The Windows Media Player controls seem to be disabled. Is this a problem with the file type created by TiVo Desktop?

    I have Windows 7 and the latest WMP.

    WMP's FF/RW controls do not work on MPEG-2 video regardless of the container it's stored in. This is a limitation of WMP and, as far as I know, there is no way around it. Your only option would be to decrypt the .tivo files to standard .mpg and then use VLC to play them instead. (VLC has FF/RW controls that do work with MPEG-2 files, but it can not play .tivo files directly)
