    I'm curious as to why Nero Vision Xtra in Nero 10 doesn't support TiVo files? I noticed that the new version of Roxio 2011 does, as well as VideoRedo.

    You would thnink that a company who RELEASED Nero Liquid TV would support the file format. Any workaround here?

    What happens in your case? When you look for a file to work with, does Nero 10 "see" the Tivo files?

    Years ago I used Nero 6 w/ Nero Vision 3 and in order to see the tivo files, I had to tell Nero Vision to look at *all files* under the file type drop down menu. But once I selected a tivo file, Nero Vision 3 worked with it just fine.

    Through this forum, I had learned that later versions of Nero weren't working with tivo files at all, so I abandoned it for VideoReDo TV Suite. The only thing VRD lacks is the ability to create sub-menus for your DVDs.

    As for why Roxio and VideoReDo support tivo files...
    I believe Roxio has a deal with TiVo (or vice versa). It's listed on TiVo's website.

    VideoReDo works with tivo files because one of the developers is a regular forum member here and he wanted to help us out. :cool:
    And increase his sales. :p

    I've already invested money in Nero. Don't want to sapend another C-note on VideoReDo. Nero had Liquid TV a while back that WAS TIVO software. How hard would it be to put that codec in there.

    Do you have Desktop on your computer? I think you still need the TiVo DirectShow Source Filter that it installs before any other programs like Nero or VRD can read .TiVo files.

    If that doesn't do it I would just use tivodecode to decrypt them into straight MPEG-2 files.

    P.S. If you have a Premiere make sure that fast transfers are not enabled.
