Ok If I want to buy a portable video player like the Ipod Video can I put Tivo shows on there and watch them? I am interested in this Archos video/mp3 player with Wifi. I have a Dell DJ but it doesn't do video. I download movies sometimes and have one now in AVI format. I want to be able to watch it on a portable movie player. My laptop is too big to carry around. But if the portable video player also played my tivo shows that would be awesome. I just wondered if there is a certain player that plays Tivo shows or do I need the Tivo 2 Go Plus which I will buy if I have to. I can get this Archos 30gig with wifi for the same price as a 30 gig ipod. I usually use Tivo 2 Go and watch on Laptop but I want something smaller that will play both a downloaded movie off the net like a AVI or mpeg, divx whatever it is and my Tivo shows even if I have to buy the plus and convert them.
Thanks, Rose
