Hello! I am a plug n play person, so I am trying to use TiVo Desktop to transfer files from my Series 2 SA units to my laptop. I am returning to the UK for school and of course, TiVo Desktop has stopped transferring. I am wondering if I copy my TiVo HdDs and take then with me, can I use the copy as an external and watch the shows or will I need to convert the copied files? Btw, the TiVo's transfer to each other and connect to the TiVo service. And of course, I am connected to the internet. Thanks for any help! Oh, I'm using a laptop running win7 and the TiVo just stopped w only 5 mbs of a show left to transfer. Thanks!
