    I installed Tivo Desktop 2.8 and when I transfer my shows to my computer and try to play them with Windows Media Center 11, it asks for a password. There is no option I see for a password in the software and it never prompted me to enter one when I installed the software. I tried my media access key just to see, and no luck? Anyone?

    Try using 'Tivo' for username and your MAK (Media Access Key) for password. Did you set the MAK in Tivo Desktop?

    Have yo recently installed any old versions of TiVo Desktop? Back when TD was first released they required a password for playback, but they removed it many versions ago. However if you recently installed an old version then it's decryption filter could still be registered on your system and could still be being used when playing .tivo files.
