It would need to be decrypted first, then it would be either a .MPG or .TS file, depending on whether its a PS or TS download.Can you convert Tivo files to mp4? If the file is 5GB, will it still be that size as an mp4 file?
They don't need to be "converted", as they're already .mp4 (or .mpg depending on the transmission source) and just need to be decrypted.Can you convert Tivo files to mp4?
Agreed, except: if you may never be using them apart from on your TiVo box, I can see not bothering to decrypt them; as well as, if you use WMP, they are playable as .tivo files.Keeping them as .tivo files is way past silly.
It keeps the metadata if you transfer it back to a TiVo.What's the upside?
