    I have been looking around my server and I have come across some .ty files from my TIVO S1 from back in the day that I would like to watch, but to be able to do that I will need to convert them.

    IIRC I used to do this with TYTOOLS but that has no option to open files that are on a server rather than a TIVO. I have had a search around and I cannot see any obvious tool to use.

    Any suggestions?

    You could try VLC Media Player. I think that used to play them (I may be wrong though).

    No VLC will not run them.

    Anyone else got any ideas on how to convert them?

    I recall using a tytompg conversion tool with our old Sony S1 to convert a handful of shows when I was ready to retire it.

    VLC used to. You needed these plugins, not sure if they still work though:
