    What format does pyTivo transfer files to the Premiere in? What resolution? I have some videos in 1080p and 720p, with some having 5.1 audio, and I'd like them to stay in that format if possible. Also really like it if it could convert the files (If it is indeed converting them) to h.264 format if possible. How do I do this?

    Head over to the Home Media forum and the pyTivo thread:

    also the installation instructions for pytivo can be found at the link in my signature. To directly answer some of your questions, yes pytivo is capable of transfering full resolution 1080p video with DD5.1 audio to the Tivo Premiere. Details are in the discussion. Pleanty of helpful folks there to get you going as well.
