Question: Is it possible for an HR10-250 to save the MPEG4 stream to the hard drive and then transcode it to MPEG2 in software? In other words, using existing hardware can I season pass an MPEG4 stream and have the box translate it to an MPEG2 stream for play back?

Oh yeah, by possible I mean theoretically since I know that the box currently can't do it.

No it is not...

From an MPEG point of view.... it has no chipset, to decode the MPEG-4... so that includes even the chipset to convert it to something else.

--------

Even if it could... it's tuners can not see the 99 and 103 SAT, and receive the Ka bands either.
I don't understand. The TIVO is just a linux box and the MPEG4 stream is just a stream of bits. Can't Tivo write some software to convert an MPEG4 file into an MPEG 2 file? This way I can play it on my box.
