    Has anyone been able to watch .tivo files via linux? Just curious where one could get the codec to work.

    Thanks,

    .TiVo files are encrypted, and current the decryption code exists only as a DLL for Windows.

    If you strip the DRM on Windows the resulting MPEG-2 file works on Linux.

    So has anyone had any luck getting any of the "decryption" tools to run under any version of WINE under Linux?
