    I downloaded some shows from my TIVO using PYTIVO however the files only have audio without video.

    Does this need a special player to see the video or perhaps special Video codec ?

    Thanks.

    Are the files really small? If so then you tried to download an H.264 channel using the PS format. TiVo doesn’t support H.264 in PS so it just downloads the audio. You have to use TS for H.264 channels.

    If the files are actually big then it could be a playback issue. If you're play in WMP then try installing the k-lite codec pack.
