    Setting up my new Acer netbook, and Tivo Desktop 2.82 / Media Player plays audio only for .TiVo files.

    Am I missing a Codec?

    Thought that installing Desktop would take care of all of that?

    Probably missing the codec. AFAIK only Home Premium, Business, Enterprise and Ultimate come with MPEG-2 codecs. Desktop will install everything you need but you have to buy the Plus upgrade to enable them.

    I think it's worth $25, but the K-Lite and CCCP free codec packs work for most people. There's a 'sticky' thread at the top of the Home Media forum that may help.
