Does the PQ software work in reverse ?

The link you give does not indicate this... but the full package may have
that functionality ?

We need an MPEG-2 file from a MPEG-4 file, playable on the TiVo.


I fully agree that it would nice to have a one-step solution.

I was hoping by now that would be TiVo providing that
solution by doing steps 1-3 for us and then downloading the video,
bypassing the PC......just like they do with Rocketboom........

Then again, Rocketboom is only 5 minutes long wheras Diggnation is
usually about 40 mins. Perhaps TiVo cannot yet support that amount
of downloading nationwide. As I have demonstrated, the transcoding and
other steps can be carried out by knowledgable users already.

I'm not sure I understand the question...

What I was trying to say is Videora for TiVo will convert the file from whatever format it is to the type of MPEG2 TiVo can deal with.

Transferring video from your PC to TiVo is built-in, as of 7.2 software, and doesn't require Galleon. Galleon of course, adds a few niceties though. :)

If this doesn't answer your question, can you try rephrasing - I just woke up from a nap and I got cobwebs upstairs.
