    Is there a limit to the file size that can be streamed to the Tivo Series 3? If I have a .vob file that's 6GB, is that going to cause a problem?

    And you're using what to stream it?

    Streambaby (not sure about hmevlc) will pause and rebuffer after streaming about 1.1GB of the file. I have yet to run into any issues with file size when actually transferring videos using pyTivo, TiVo Desktop or my own custom RSS feeds.

    HME/VLC will just stop when the buffer is full. (Or at least, I assume so... I've never actually filled the buffer myself. Anyway, the point is that it doesn't try to rebuffer like Streambaby does.) But pyTivo should be limited only by the size of the drive.
