Greetings from The Great White North! Please help! I have read HOURS of suggestions on the TIVO Forum, from the most complicated 'programmer' fixes to some very simple ones and nothing seems to work. I have a Series 2 (our only option in Canada) and Windows Media Player (WMP) used to play them fine. Many past suggestions appear to be obsolete (pertain to past OS or program versions. And the options must be FREE! The options should not include having to 'decode' or 'convert' .tivo files (my brain will simply explode). The simplest fix appears to be adding the missing Codec (using that word may make it sound like I understand what I am saying - do not believe it! ;0) So here are the deets: Tivo Series 2 DVR Windows 7 64 bit PC/laptop Tivo Desktop .tivo files (think 1T worth) WMP 12 Error message: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file... blah blah blah...might not support the codec that was used to compress the file." I JUST WANT TO PLAY MY OLD RECORDINGS!!!! <--- picture of grown adult throwing full blown tantrum!!!
