Advertisements AFAIK - tivo encrypted files are mpeg 2 files with encryption. For mpeg 2, muxing and demuxing should be a pretty quick thing. If the encrytion is left in place, what is the tivo muxing? Wouldn't it be muxed at recording? Does anyone have a link to a tech faq about the process that occurs during recording / playback / transfer? If downloading from a web browser grabs the native file, i just don't understand how that is different than MRV?
