Hey everyone -

Look for a new version of TiVo Desktop to be released soon (most likely tomorrow). There are a number of new features & improvements you've asked for:

* Support for Windows Vista

* Support for DixV and Xvid formats for Web Video Conversions (wrapped in .avi or .divx containers).

* Convert individual shows from Desktop’s Now Playing list at any time, to any profile, by right-clicking.

Don't know exactly when it'll go up on tivo.com, but it won't be long. ;)

nice! thanks for keeping us informed.
Fab, but will it also accompany an S3 Upgrade that enables TTG? Otherwise there's not much to get excited about for us S3 owners.

2.5 is up at Tivo.com. Too bad I'm at work and can't test it now. Everyone have fun and let the rest of us know how it goes.

I just rolled back to XP last week. ;) Is the Divx/Xvid transcoding in both directions? Are we still limited to 320x240?

How will aspect ratios will be handled for this new feature? Either 4:3 or widescreen original content converted and displayed on either 4:3 or 16:9.

I know we won't get S3 TTG from this but will we at least see TTCB? I hate having to switch to my PS3 to watch video content on my PC !!!! The PS3 is a games console - TiVo's meant to me my Media Server!!!!

Will you be supporting Vista 64-bit, or just 32-bit?

TTCB is incumbent upon the software on the Series 3 supporting that feature, and currently it does not.

I did briefly and it seemed to work fine. All I really use TiVo Desktop for is the ComeBack feature, so the Mac version with the video sharing turned on works fine for me. (Thanks Dennis!)
