One other thing in regards to Tivo ToGo usage. It really surprises me if those numbers are correct. I am not even that interested in downloading the video from the Tivo. My main use was using the Tivo as a gateway to my home stereo to play my MP3's. That to me was the key feature that made Tivo stand out from paying half of the monthly cost and just getting the DVR from my cable company (they charge only $6.95 a month) and I would even be able to record two channels at once!EwanG said:Personally, I'd like to be able to run TivoDesktop from Linux so I wouldn't have to do the crazy stuff I do just to have a RAID array for my TivoToGo shows. But I'm not at all surprised that it isn't a TiVo priority.
Because the sad (to me) truth is that even among Windows users, there isn't that much use of TivoDesktop. I suspect that no more than 10% of TiVo's installed base has used TivoDesktop more than once, and if you figure out what percentage of that already small market is the Mac market...
Yes, I think it's a bad thing that TiVo has not done a better job of developing software that could easily be ported to different OS's and such. I think the success of getting Galleon running on Mac, Windows, and Linux shows the development path that TiVo should have used. However, I can also understand having to make trade-offs.
That said, have you looked at using Galleon on your Mac?
